Anger as net issue drags on in Portlaoise

A decision on whether to reinstate dividing nets at playing pitches in Portlaoise Leisure Centre is still some way off.

A decision on whether to reinstate dividing nets at playing pitches in Portlaoise Leisure Centre is still some way off.

The topic will be discussed at the next board meeting of the centre.

“A lot of people are getting very angry over the lack of a response,” Cllr Catherine Fitzgerald said at the May meeting of Portlaoise municipal district.

She had a motion calling for the nets to be replaced, her third time to ask this year

“There is a lot of bad feeling about it, and it’s increasing because there’s no response. I want to see the nets reinstated, that’s what people want,” she said.

Cllr Jerry Lodge, a board member, said it is on the agenda for the next meeting later this May.
