New site for million euro fire station in Manorhamilton to be signed off on today

Leitrim County Council is expected to approve a site for a new one million euro fire station in Manorhamilton today.

The proposed site is located on the Sligo side of Manorhamilton, beside the N16 Sligo/Enniskillen route.

Manorhamilton was among 16 locations announced last February by Environment Minister Alan Kelly to get new fire stations.

Leitrim Fine Gael Councillor Frank Dolan says agreement on the new site will be a major advance in the move toward providing the much-needed new station.

He says the issue has been going on for years.
