Baile Glas and Gort Na Coille housing estates in Lombardstown are to receive a €40,000 facelift in the coming weeks.
The enhancement works which include the upgrading of the green area, tree and shrub planting, improvement to public and car parking area, provision of additional seating and a relaxation area are just some of the works that will be undertaken by the Baile Glas/Gort Na Coille Residents Association in partnership with Avondhu Blackwater Partnership and Cork County Council.
Welcoming the enhancement works, local Independent Cllr. John Paul O’ Shea said “This is wonderful news and a great achievement for the residents in both Baile Glas and Gort Na Coille estates. Not only will these works be of great benefit to all the residents in the estates, it is also of great benefit to the entire community of Lombarsdtown. We have a fantastic amenity within the environs of these estates and it is important we do as much as possible to support people like the Baile Glas/Gort Na Coille Residents Association to be a part of maintaining and enhancing their facilities”.
John Nyhan, Chairman of Baile Glas/Gort Na Coille Residents Association said “We are delighted Avondhu Blackwater Partnership and Cork County Council have come on board with us on the project as we really want to improve the appearance of our estates. This project has brought about a great sense of community spirit and willingness and I want to say a special word of thanks to Cathal O’ Meara, Landscape Architect with Avondhu Blackwater Partnership for his assistance to the Residents Association in recent months ensuring this project proceeded. We are delighted to have received funding from Avondhu Blackwater Partnership and Cork County Council for these works which I hope will commence early in the New Year”.
