Which way to King Wil­liam’s Glen?

Mid Louth Independent - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

A ques­tion - what is wrong with this sign­post at the cor­ner of Georges Street and Trin­ity Street?

Well, sim­ply, if you fol­lowed the in­for­ma­tion for King Wil­liam’s Glen, you’d be a long time find­ing it.

The sign was point­ing north­wards for some time - but thank­fully - last week - it was turned in the right di­rec­tion. (must have known the pic­ture right was com­ing!) .

This is prob­a­bly a good ex­am­ple of what the next few months needs to hap­pen around Drogheda.

The days are count­ing down for the Fleadh and we will have hun­dreds of thou­sands of vis­i­tors in the town - with no idea where the Col­lon Road is, how to get to the train sta­tion, bus sta­tion, McDon­nell’s shop in Hard­man’s Gar­dens, Joe’s chip­per in Yel­low­bat­ter, John’s shop on the Platin Road, the Satur­day morn­ing mar­ket, ba­si­cally - we have to ad­dress ev­ery sign and junc­tion in the area.

While the sign post across the road from this one at the turn onto Nar­row West Street con­tains plenty of in­for­ma­tion - it has so many point­ers on it, you can’t see them!

I be­lieve the coun­cil are do- ing an in­ven­tory of the streets that re­quire road mark­ings, but I think they should bring in two engi­neers - who know noth­ing about the town - and get them to walk the place and come back with some ob­vi­ous ques­tions that we miss on a daily ba­sis.
