Cllr Michael Sheehan sought an update on The Docks building in New Ross at the New Ross Municipal District meeting.
“It’s a fantastic building lying idle,” the cathaoirleach said about the John Street premises that work began on in 2018.
New Ross district director of services, Eamonn Hore said the building is in private ownership.
“A lot of money has been spent to bring it to this stage. We are very hopeful that when the owner sees the details of all that is happening in New Ross - when we write to him again – that he will continue on with the good work that he has started as it will take very little to finish it.”
