MINISTER for the Environment, Phil Hogan has asked his Department officials to explore the possibility of opening a new library and providing local services at Ferrybank Shopping Centre which is built but not open yet.

The plan would include 6,000 square feet of ground floor space which would house a library and essential modern services for the people of Ferrybank and South Kilkenny. Intensive negotiations have been underway in recent weeks between officials of the Department of the Environment, Kilkenny Co Council and NAMA. The cost of the planned project is in the region of 1 million and a decision is expected shortly.
