Fine Gael's Cllr Fergal Browne has received confirmation from Carlow County Council that a new replacement pump for the fountain at Plás na Saoirse is being actively sourced.

The original pump was 21-years-old and no longer worked which caused the water to become discoloured in recent days. 

Sourcing a similar pump may take a short while but Carlow County Council are committed to getting this landmark fountain back working.
