Specialist contractor appointed to carry out remedial works at Castleblayney Market House

A specialist contractor has been appointed to carry out remedial works on the Castleblayney Market House.

Starting today, Hegarty Contractors will work to remove the entire roof structure and all internal debris. They will also remove the clock and roof dome, and install structural stability bracing to the building.

A timeframe of eight weeks has been put on the works, and local councillor Aidan Campbell says there needs to be action when the building has been made safe.
