Council Insists Miltown Rat Complaints A Priority

Clare County Council insists it’s treating complaints about rats in one West Clare housing estate as a priority.

Locals in the Ballard Road Estate in Miltown Malbay say the vermin have been attracted by rubbish left outside a Council-owned home that has recently become unoccupied.

The estate has previously won awards for the work of the Residents’ Association and locals are concerned the problem will get worse.


One of those, Michael Nestor, wants the Council to take action.
