Free to call road what­ever they like!

Bray People - - About Greystones -

AT A re­cent meet­ing of Grey­stones Town Coun­cil, Cllr, Kath­leen Kelle­her pointed out that the prac­tice of re­fer­ring to Church Road as Main Street has started to ’creep in to the nomen­cla­ture’ of the town.

She of­fered a num­ber of ex­am­ples, in­clud­ing the ad­dress quoted as part of an ad­ver­tise­ment in a news­pa­per.

While agree­ing, that the road should be re­ferred to as ’Church Road’ in its en­tirety, Mayor Ge­orge Jones said that it has long been the prac­tice to re­fer to the res­i­den­tial sec­tion as Church Road and the shop­ping sec­tion as the ’Main Street’.

’It’s a free coun­try,’ said Cllr. Jones. ’We can’t tell peo­ple what ad­dress to put in the pa­per.’
