Councillor critises scheduled plans for water services in Mid Kerry

Improvements scheduled to be made to water services in Mid Kerry have been criticised by a local councillor. The County Council intend to lay a pipe to pump water directly from Barleymount reservoir to resident`s dependant on Laharn reservoir if it experiences problems. However, Cllr Michael O Shea says since Christmas people in the Mid Kerry area have been left without water for up to four days on seven occasions. He says a bigger reservoir is needed at Laharn to cope with the increase in population.
