Councillors are to consider a motion seeking to make Sligo “a breastfeeding friendly city.”

Listed in the names of Councillor S. Maguire and Councillor M. Casserly, the matter is to be discussed at the next monthly meeting of the Sligo Municipal council on Monday.

The motion states: “That Sligo will become a Breastfeeding Friendly city and introduce the supports required to encourage more mothers to begin and continue breastfeeding for longer.”

Another Councillor is calling on the county council to “commence the process to survey the existing landing facilities at Inismurray,” to design necessary improvements and carry out required works with support on funding, if needed, from the Department of Transport, Marine and the Environment.
