Lavelle secures reopening of Finnstown House-Adamstown pedestrian link

October 28, 2011  

William has warmly welcomed the positive deicison of the receiver appoinetd to Finnstown House Hotel to reopen the locked pedestrian gate between the hotel grounds and Adamstown following Cllr. Lavelle’s intervention.

The gate had been locked at the start of Summer at the behest of the court-appointed receiver to the Mansifield–owned hotel.

Cllr. Lavelle states: ”I had been contacted by a large number of Adamstown residents who previsouly used this gate to access the hotel and gym. It’s closure was a blow to many residents.

“I had discussions with hotel management and identifed concerns that existed over the potential creation of a legal right-of-way. I subsequently issued formal correspondance to the receiver clarifiying the legal position with respect to rights-of-way and requesting on behalf of residents that the gate be reopened.

“I am delighted that on foot of my intervention the receiver has now decided to reopen the gate between the hours of 6am and 10pm subject to regular review.. The hotel wrote to me this week (27th September) advising me of the decision which is most welcome.
