Derelict site in west Cavan village to be demolished

It has been confirmed that a dangerous derelict site in a West Cavan village is to be demolished. The building has been lying derelict in Ballymacgovern on the road to Leitrim for a number of years despite safety concerns.

It had been put on last month’s agenda by Cavan-Belturbet Councillor Sean Smith, who confirmed at this month’s meeting that a planning order was now in place for the building following engagement by the owners with the council.

The building is now set to be demolished in the coming months.
