Abbeyleix Library needs 'painting job'

A lick of paint is needed on an architectural gem in the centre of a historic Laois town.

Cllr John Joe Fennelly has asked for a paint job for the award-winning Abbeyleix library.

“This is a hobbyhorse of my own, the library in Abbeyleix. Is there any way we can upgrade the facade?  It needs a painting job. It’s a feature building in our town,” he said.

Mr Brennan told him that money for this was not included in the capital budget.
