Tommy wants safe walkway
CLLR Tommy Byrne tabled an emergency motion for Monday’s council meeting at Barlow House, calling for the council to provide a new secure and safe route for the 300 children from Moneymore,who walk to Ballymackenny School.
‘The lethal and dark alleyway between Moneymore and Castle Manor Estate must be closed immediately. The alleyway is a hang-out for drugs and used by gunmen. The big fear is that a child will encounter these people at the gap and the route has also been used to mount robberies on local delivery people. This is about the safety of local people in both estates of Moneymore and Castle Manor.
‘This is the worst case I have come across as an auctioneer and councillor in County Louth. The land owned by Louth County Council right beside the Ballymakenny School needs to be developed to provide a secure and safe roadway to the school. The people of Moneymore deserve a safe route to school for their children.’
