The Ballsgrove Clinic which was the target of asonists in December last is to reopen in October.
The Ballsgrove Clinic, which is undergoing a total refurbishment made necessary by an arson attack on the property in December 2016, is to reopen in October.
The ongoing work includes the complete rewiring of the building, replacement of heating and security systems.
Cllr. Paul Bell says that at one stage he feared that the facility, which is highly valued by the local community, would remain closed permanently.
“My engagement with the HSE has reassured me that the future of the facility and services are safe for the foreseeable future” he said.
Work starts on Donore Road bus shelter
Councillor Bell has also expressed his delight that a purpose-built bus set down area on Donore Road for passengers boarding buses to Dublin and Belfast is to become a reality.
A contractor has been appointed by Louth County Council, work commence on July 24th and will be completed in two weeks.
“I am very satisfied that my three year campaign to see these essential works actioned in the interests of public safety is to become a reality” Bell said.
Bell also hopes that a safe area can be found close to the Ballsgrove entrance for buses driving into town as this would be a further positive development for those using public transport in the area.
