Deputy Seamus Healy has called on Minister Phil Hogan to immediately instruct Irish Water to clear blocked sewers. This problem is now evident in several areas of Clonmel and further afield.

Very serious public health and safety issues are arising as a result of the failure of Irish Water to Clear these sewers.

Local authorities have done this work in the past and Irish Water which has assumed the water and waste water responsibilities of local authorities must now carry out this work.

Urgent and immediate action by Minister Hogan and Irish Water is now required.
