The laneway to the rear of houses in O'Neill Crowley Terrace has been a dumping ground.

Residents in O’Neill Crowley Terrace in Mitchelstown have called on Cork County Council to address an overgrown section of a laneway to the rear of the estate, as it has become a dumping ground for rubbish and has made rear access to a number of houses impossible.

In a deputation brought by Cllr Kay Dawson and Cllr Noel McCarthy, three residents in the estate – Seamus Kilmartin, Karen Walsh and Tricia Cahillane – raised their concerns at the June meeting of the Fermoy Municipal Authority this week.
