The news was confirmed at a recent sitting of Monaghan County Council.

Co Monaghan will receive two additional charging stations for electric vehicles. The news was confirmed at a recent meeting of Monaghan County Council, following a question raised by Sinn Fein's Colm Carthy on the matter.

The new charging points will be located at the courthouse car park in Monaghan town and the civic buildings in Carrickmacross.

Speaking to Northern Sound, Cllr Colm Carthy confirmed that works on the charging points are expected to begin during the summer of 2023 with a completion date set for early 2024.

Cllr Carthy added that while the new charging points will be put to "good use," more of them across the county are needed. "Any additional units that are installed will be put to  good use in Carrickmacross and indeed in Monaghan town as well," said Cllr Carthy.

"We need to see more of them rolled out in our other towns too. While I was chairperson of the council a couple of years ago, I called for one to be installed in Ballybay because there was none.

"I also requested that we look into the possibility of increasing the number of existing towns who had EV charging points because more and more people are looking down the route of electric vehicles. Local drivers and those who wish to visit or pass through the county need to have these facilities  available to them."
