Monaghan councillors have called on the council to undertake a "formal investigation" into the resident's inability to connect to public sewers.
In a joint motion at a recent Monaghan MD meeting, councillors Raymond Aughey, Seamus Treanor, David Maxwell, and Paudge Connolly called for residents on the Clones and Ballinode Roads to have access to these services.
David Maxwell told the meeting that he got a costing of €5 million for these works, and added that a "succinct plan" would allow the MD to lobby for funding.

Paudge Connolly told the meeting that "it's unspeakable that these residents don't have access to the public sewer system".
