Waterways Ireland has lodged a planning application to carry out repair works on a Carlow weir.

Planning permission is being sought for remedial repair and strengthening work to an existing weir at the Lower Tinnahinch Weir on the River Barrow, off the R705.

It will will incorporate a rock ramp fish pass in front of the existing weir. The fish pass will require the lowering of a section of the existing weir.

A Natura Impact Statement (NIS) will be submitted.

A decision is due by the local authority on September 15.
