Carlow Town Traders meet to look at town rejuvenation

Focus groups are to be set up to concentrate on the different issues facing Carlow Town when it comes to business.

A second major meeting of local traders, in association with Carlow’s Chamber of Commerce, took place last night to discuss rejuvenating the town.

A taskforce was established after their first meeting earlier this year involving 50-60 local business people.

Chief Executive of the Chamber, Brian O’Farrell says a survey of those members showed some were paying up to 10,000 euro a year in rates – which was outlined as the main issue.
