Anger as path­way in Money­more blocked

Mid Louth Independent - - NEWS -

IT’S hoped that mo­torists park­ing around the Money­more area and in other parts of Drogheda will learn a les­son from a cam­paign sparked by a blocked foot­path last week.

Peo­ple with bug­gies and wheel­chairs and pedes­tri­ans had their route blocked by cars parked all day on the path­way lead­ing to DIFE.

Lo­cal woman Jen­nifer Boy­lan, a stu­dent in DIFE, said the sit­u­a­tion has just got­ten out of hand.

‘Ev­ery­day I walk I come across cars parked on the foot­path on the road to col­lege,’ she states. She has to push her child’s buggy onto a grass hill while she sees fel­low stu­dents in wheel­chairs hav­ing to go onto the road with com­ing traf­fic be­cause the foot paths are taken up with cars.

She said she fears there will be an ac­ci­dent and is urg­ing cars to park on the road and not the path­way. Let­ters of protest were also pinned to some wind­screens.

Cars im­pact­ing on pedes­tri­ans

Com­plaints about park­ing on the foot­path at Money­more ap­peared to have been lis­tened to as ve­hi­cles re­turned to park­ing on the road­side only, later in the week.
