Residents of Richmond Hill, Fermoy are concerned that three terraced houses which line the side of that road and have been vacant for some years now, are the site of possible anti-social behaviour.

One local described how teenagers have recently begun to enter these houses, and stated that the Gardaí have been called on several occasions. 

It is understood that the houses are privately owned. 

Cllr Noel McCarthy acknowledged that he is keenly aware of this issue, and stated that he had been in contact with the owner of these properties, and believes that the owner is looking for contractors at the moment. “Work is due to start in the next 4 to 6 weeks.” 

Cllr McCarthy went on to say that he understands that the owner intends for the houses to be occupied once work on the buildings is completed.
