Councillor Sharon Tolan welcomes news on the new loos for Laytown.
The public toilets at the entrance to Laytown beach were never much to look at but in recent years, despite attempts by local volunteers to pretty them up, they have succumbed to the ravages of time and the weather and have been boarded up and become eyesores.
However, thanks in no small way to the hard work of local Councillor Sharon Tolan (FG) who has secured funding for a number of beach related capital works in the East Meath coastal area, most notably the €2 million Beach Management Plan, Meath County Council has appointed contractors to refurbish and reinstate the old toilet block.
Welcoming the news of the new loos, Cllr. Tolan said they will not only benefit beach goers, but also users of the nearby Laytown playground and the wider public, and take the pressure off local businesses that deserve to be allowed reserve their own facilities for patrons.
The contractors, Oliver Gaynor Building, Electrical and Heating Services, are due to commence next Monday,15th April, and will be open for the public in the coming months.
