ONE WAY TRAFFIC
Due to requests and suggestions around traffic measures and safety Cadra is currently in discussion with Sligo County Council re the development of a one way traffic system at Church.
The concept is to have traffic enter from the School side and Martin Reilly Garage side but exit only opposite the church Gate. The idea is to reduce the number of cars meeting at the school side of this very busy junction. The objective is safety.
We would welcome your views on the issue and will be interested in hearing your feed back over the next few months. Contact any committee member or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note the date we are commencing in Carraroe is Tuesday, September 12. We are looking forward to meeting all our regular players and hopefully some new people. Keep the date free and spread the word.

VISIT TO CARNS
The Cadra walk for Heritage week to the CARNs on Cairns hill last Tuesday was great successes in raising awareness of the area. We appreciate the support demonstrated by the seventy five people of all ages that attended despite the very inclement weather. Stefan Bergh gave a very enlightening talk on the history, and its connections back to 3200 BC and answered the many interesting question posed by the audience.
This is the first stage in a campaign to have the CARNS preserved, protected and developed for future generations. We will continue to advocate having proper structured walkways developed to ensure public access is available.
We were particularly please to witness the interest among the following public representatives who attended ; Tony McLoughlin TD, TD Eamonn Scanlon, TD Martin Kenny, Cllr Marie Casserley, We received apologies from the following who could not attend due to previously arranged commitments but did convey their support for our efforts Cllr Tom Mac Sharry, Cllr Keith Henry, Cllr Hubert Keaney, Cllr Sinéad Maguire Cllr Chris Mac Manus, Cllr Rosaleen O’Grady, Cllr Thomas Healy, Cllr Martin Baker, Cllr Séamus Kilgannon Chair Sligo County Council attended and addressed the group assuring Sligo County Council support in having the area developed the area within walking distance of Sligo Town with its historic archaeology dating back to 3400BC and its linkage to Carrowmore, Knocknarea, Maugherboy, Carrowkeel has the potential to be a major tourist attraction.
The development of prop- er walks and marketing could extend the stay of the tourist in Sligo and be a generator of the economic growth and jobs for Sligo.
