Leinster Leader 21 October 1950
Labours Town Improvements
County Hospital

Correspondence was read in connection with the County Hospital, stating that the contract had been given out for new windows, and work would commence at once, and when same was completed the contractor for the pebble dashing of the hospital would commence work. Plans have been drawn up and sent to the Department of Health for approval for the new Nurses Residence at the County Hospital, and when same is approved the work will be advertised for contract. Negotiations were taking place with the Leinster Estate in request of a site at the Market Square for the weighbridge. It was decided to request the Co. Council to have a new public sanitary convenience erected in place the old public lavatory which has been condemned and closed.
A complaint was received that the South Green pump was still out of order, and that the contractor had them taken up the pump some months ago, and that nothing was done with it since.
It was decided to again report the matter to the Council.
