Council slammed for delay in examining Kildare wall

Teach Dara in Kildare town

Kildare County Council has been criticised for the amount of time it took to discover if a wall in Kildare town had a conservation order on it.

Cllr Suzanne Doyle said the Teach Dara community centre had to cordon off the footpath and the wall in February 2016 as it was bulging over and was in danger of collapsing.

She said they had asked the council if the wall was a protected structure before they attempted to repair it.
