Cllr Harvey outlined that he met with OPW officials carrying out the clean-up and he remarked, “The works started on the clean-up in the past week and they are progressing along stream throughout the town.”

And the Tullamore Town Council Leas Cathaoirleach concluded, “I want to compliment the staff on the tremendous work they are doing. And while there is still a large amount of debris remaining in the river this will be removed in the coming weeks.”
