The Naas hoarding

Fears have been expressed about the condition of a wooden hoarding around a derelict site in Naas.

Cllr Anne Breen said Kildare County Council should examine the current condition of the temporary wooden hoarding around the site that was previously Sarah Flood’s public house, at St Corban’s Lane. “It’s ready to fall; it’s a danger and an eyesore,” she told a Naas Municipal District meeting.
