DIFFERENCES in the quality of public toilet facilities in the Clogher Valley have captured the interest of Dungannon Council in recent weeks.

While those in Clogher and Aughnacloy were described at a recent sub committee meeting as “in urgent need of replacement”, facilities in Augher and Ballygawley received praise from elected members.

The meeting was told that discussions about a number of options for the toilets in Clogher are currently ongoing, and council officers were informed that another potential location in the centre of the village should be investigated.

Meanwhile, the poor state of public conveniences in Aughnacloy was also an issue for discussion.

Members heard the existing site is very restrictive in nature and does not lend itself to easy access. Another option under consideration for the town was said to be in a good location but faced issues regarding third party ownership and the condition of the building. Public toilets in Augher were deemed “excellent”, while Ballygawley also received full marks.
