Athy MD’s Cllr Aoife Breslin has asked the council to confirm that Waterways Ireland, as part of the development of the Barrow Blueway, will provide defibrillators and life buoys on the route.

In response to her question, raised at the MD’s July meeting, it was noted that Kildare Co Council – along with Waterways Ireland and Laois Co Council – are considering the requirements in relation to defibrillators and life buoys along the route, including possible locations, maintenance requirements and responsibility in relation to maintenance of those items.

These are items to be discussed by the Steering Group over the coming weeks, it was explained.
