Residents of the once peaceful eco-village object to nearby venue’s marriage plans
Residents of Ireland’s first purpose-built eco-village in Cloughjordan, Co Tipperary, claim that the soundproofing at Cloughjordan House is so poor that neighbours can hear the wedding speeches and guests’ karaoke
It was conceived as a model of peaceful coexistence with nature, but now residents of Ireland’s first purpose-built eco-village in Cloughjordan, Co Tipperary, claim that noisy neighbours are ruining their tranquillity.
Seventeen of them have signed a letter objecting to a planning application by neighbouring Cloughjordan House to retain a converted barn, marquee, kitchen, toilet block and campsite that are used for hosting weddings and corporate team-building weekends.
Deirdre O’Leary and Andrew Lummis, a couple whose bedroom is less than 50 metres from the marquee, claim they and their children, one of whom sat the Leaving Certificate last year, are kept awake until after 1.30am three nights a week during wedding season, which runs from April until November.
