Lixnaw’s €2m Integrated Constructed Wetland (ICW) is expected to be open to the public by the end of 2021.
Works on the pioneering project - delivered by Healy-Rae Plant Hire Ltd on behalf of Irish Water - were ‘substantially complete’ in December 2020 and the project is now fully operational.
However, a 12-month commissioning period is currently in place to ensure everything is working efficiently and that a dense vegetation can develop.
Lixnaw GAA are running a huge car raffle on June 6 to help finance the construction of a brand new Ball Wall and Astro Turf pitch for the entire community to enjoy.
During lockdown, more locals have been making use of the outdoor facilities in Lixnaw, and now the community have decided to build this ambitious new project for the benefit of current and future generations.
Fergus Fitzmaurice of the Development Committee says the new Ball Wall and Astro Turf pitch, complete with lighting and fencing, will be of benefit not just to the hurling club but to many organisations who cater for the young and old in the parish.
