Council confirms plans to acquire derelict  buildings in Limerick towns

Maryville, Laurel Hill Avenue, Limerick is one of the properties which Limerick City and Council intends to acquire

LIMERICK City and County Council has begun the process to CPO a number of derelict buildings in west Limerick including a former restaurant.

The local authority has published public notices advising of its intention to compulsorily acquire the properties under the Derelict Sites Act 1990.

A former restaurant at Church Street, Rathkeale is among the buildings to be acquired along with a former gas works building  which is also located at Church Street in the town.

Several properties, including a number of cottages and former storage units, at Brewery Lane, Askeaton (pictured below) are also the subject of the public notices.

More than 100 derelict sites and properties have been acquired over the past two years.
