Gorey’s historic Market House on the Main Street should be prioritised for development during 2022 and there was strong support from members at today’s monthly meeting of Gorey Kilmuckridge Municipal District Council held under Covid-19 guidelines in Gorey Courthouse this afternoon.
Cllr Joe Sullivan suggested that the Market House be placed in the middle of plans for Gorey in 2022. “In the seven years that I have been on the Council the Market House and Esmonde Street have been under discussion and I want developments be brought to fruition,” he stated.
Cllr Donal Kenny said the Market House could be “a game changer for Gorey” and he asked that the CEO, Tom Enright, be invited to the Market House swiftly and see can progress be made.
Cllr Anthony Donohoe stated that in his seven and a half years on the council “the Market House was on the books” and he hoped “2022 could get something moving.”
Cllr Fionntán Ó Súilleabháin reminded the members that the historic chamber room was “falling into disrepair” and he hoped it could be restored to display “priceless objects.”
