Councillors in Gorey have moved to reassure the public that there is no ‘done deal’ attached to the proposed development of the Market House in the town centre.

They described comments from one of their colleagues, Cllr. Robbie Ireton, as unhelpful. Cllr. Anthony Donohoe said it was important to point out that nothing had been decided on the development.

The broad Council aim in relation to the development is that it covers arts, culture and entertainment and provides a boost to Gorey’s evening economy.

And Cllr. Malcom Byrne pointed out that the property will also stay in public ownership.

Cllr. Byrne and Cllr. John Hegarty, as well as Cllr. Donohoe stressed it was an open process and said it was important that the public have confidence in it so any talk of done deals was unhelpful.
