The public toilets in the West Waterford town of Tallow are set to reopen in the coming weeks. The facility had been a victim of cutbacks in recent times – the following joint statement was issued to The Avondhu this week by Cllr John Pratt and Cllr James Tobin.

‘Following meetings with the local engineer, Noel Healy and John Foley, our general services supervisor, we are delighted to announce the reopening of the public toilets in Tallow. These will be opened in the next few weeks once some repairs, painting and renovations are complete.

‘The public toilets have been closed with a couple of years due to cutbacks and we are delighted that through consistent representations, this decision has finally been reversed.

‘With the Tallow Gathering events on the June bank holiday weekend, having the toilets reopened will be of great benefit to the town. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank both John Foley and Noel Healy for making this possible and also to thank Waterford County Council and the staff for the high standard of work carried out in the local car park and for the great work that the council staff are doing in the Lismore Electoral Area, in general, with very limited resources and staff.’
