Fresh concerns raised over health and safety of public at CAS site

Residents of Wolfe Tone, Michael and Greensbridge Street in Kilkenny have once again raised concerns around the safety of the site of the CAS works there.

The heavy works have been ongoing for the past three weeks and are due to finish up today.

The Council and the contractors have come in for much criticism over the past number of weeks because the site was accessible and not cordoned off fully.

It appears the situation was the same just yesterday as photos have been shared online of people walking through the site which is covered in debris.

Speaking to KCLR News today, Kilkenny City Councillor Malcolm Noonan says he has requested a meeting with the Council CEO about it.

And he says health and safety measures there need to be stepped up.
