Replacement of 'pallet' wood fences to cost Laois County Council €19,000

Wooden fences that blew down in council housing estates in Laois are to be replaced next year by Laois County Council, at a cost of €19,000.

Cllr Willie Aird recalled the warning by Sinn Féin Deputy Brian Stanley at the time the fences were built.

“Brian Stanley said it before, pallets were used as fences, now they are all falling down. I hope it doesn’t happen again. The only blame is with housing,” he said.
