Reply To: an taisce-and rumours of them going bust
that’s true. there is a lot after killimor. there is a big infrastructural project about to start in tynagh which i hope will bring more people into the town at least while it’s being built and therefore help enhance the area. there is planning permission for about 150 house in the portumna area, within the town inself or just outside it.
i presume this is the same for nearly every small town within an hours drive from every major centre. this is what everyone i believe would like to see happen as it enhances small towns while cutting out major ribbon development. it will never stop it but a slow down is desirable.
this being as it is there needs to be investment in the services of small towns or people as u say will shop in loughrea or nearest big town. i can only talk about portumna cos it’s my home town but i think it’s a standard case really.
