The new public eco toilets at Seapoint car park are also wheelchair friendly.
Councillor Michelle Hall has welcomed the installation of state of the art new Eco- friendly, wheelchair acccessible toilets at Seapoint Beach car park in Termonfeckin.
The permanent amenity follows on from the Drogheda Rural Councillor’s success last year in securing two portaloo toilets at the Green Coast Flag beach for the busy summer season .
“I’d like to thank Louth County Council for installing these aesthetically pleasing, sustainable and wheelchair accessible toilets at Seapoint beach” she said.
“I’d also like to thank the public who didn’t abuse the portaloos that had been in situ since last year, proving that amenities such as public toilets can be a success and a very welcome addition for all who visit our beautiful coastal beaches.

The need for public toilets is very gendered as women are three times more likely to need a toilet and as women are mostly the primary carers for children who when they need a toilet, they usually can’t wait to go home!
“The toilets are accessible for wheelchair users which will invite visitors from far afield and make the visit to the North East coast more pleasant and carefree.”
The Eco-toilet uses sunlight and wind to dry human waste. The forced airflow reduces waste volume by up to 90%, kills pathogens and promotes aerobic bacteria, requires no additions such as straw and sawdust and works to eliminate odours.
