Library for Rathcoole


Wednesday, December 09, 2015


MOTION: Councillor F. Timmons

Cathaoireleach’s Business

“That in order to progress a Library for Rathcoole that a report be brought on the suitability of the ”court of petty sessions”, the estimated cost of using the space as a library and overall cost of refit and staffing.”




It will be possible to do a report in early 2016 on the suitability of the “Court of Petty Sessions” use as a Library in Rathcoole Village.

However, at present, there is no funding available for a refit, shelving and stocking of a new library in Rathcoole in our budget for 2016. We also wouldn’t currently have means of staffing such a library.

A permanent library serving the Rathcoole/Saggart/Newcastle area would indeed be a huge asset to the communities of these areas. The County Council and Libraries Department will consider this request subject to a planned investment programme in library infrastructure being put in place in the future.
