Sinn Féin Councillor Conor D. McGuinness has welcomed the resolution of the long-running saga regarding the property occupied by the Causeway Tennis and Bowls Club in Dungarvan. McGuinness secured the backing of the full Council for his proposal to offer the club a 75 year lease on the land.
“This very complicated issue has been running for a long number of years, and I am glad that it has finally been resolved. Many public representatives have been involved in pushing for a solution during that time.
“The Causeway Tennis and Bowls Club provides a fantastic amenity for the people of Dungarvan, Abbeyside, and surrounding areas. It caters to all ages and provides a much needed piece of community infrastructure.
“Following on from the Council’s recent Compulsory Purchase Order I proposed that the land in question be disposed of by way of a 75 year lease. This offers a level of stability and sustainability for the club.”
