Possible solution ahead for River Deel saga

In an uncharacteristic move today, Limerick County Council has dropped high court injunctions against two Palaskenry protestors.

The project they are protesting about, the river Deel project is designed to re-source the town’s water supply which is currently coming from a local lake. The council wants the towns supply coming from the river Deel. The residents of Palaskenry are having none of it. They say the river is polluted.

One of them, Orla Kaiser who escaped a jail sentence in June, is relieved but feels there’s still work left to do. Work on the project has been stopped numerous times by protesters.
