Tommy wants safe walk­way

Mid Louth Independent - - NEWS -

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.’
