Review that would see Carlow take full charge of Graiguecullen attracts fewer than 10 submissions

It’s emerged that not even 10 submissions have been made on the proposed boundary review between Carlow and Laois ahead of todays deadline.

It compares to more than 20,000 sent in on the Waterford-Kilkenny review before public consultation on that closed last month.

If the Carlow boundary review is approved it would see Carlow take in all of Graiguecullen – an area of the town currently shared with Laois.

Submissions can be made to either Carlow or Laois County Council before 5pm or online at www.carlowboundaryreview.ie before midnight.

But Senior Executive Officer in Carlow county council, Éamonn Brophy told KCLR that they’ve had barely any interest so far which is a matter of concern for them.
