We will be work­ing in the fu­ture to have this ad­dressed to en­sure the IBAL re­port in the fu­ture does not have to high­light this again ‘Ap­proach from Junc­tion at R287: Grade B This route lead­ing into Sligo was some­what lit­tered with sweet pa­pers, fast-food wrappers and cof­fee cups very much in ev­i­dence. The road sur­face and mark­ings were in good con­di­tion.’.

We have noted this road into Sligo is high­lighted and re­duced our grade which is a dis­ap­point­ment. We will be ex­am­in­ing how we can pre­vent this lo­ca­tion re­duc­ing our rat­ings in the fu­ture.


Work is pro­gress­ing on this de­vel­op­ment and is now reach­ing Molly Ful­ton’s which will al­low our res­i­dents the op­por­tu­nity to walk and cy­cle safely to this lo­ca­tion. We are now work­ing to have the next phase de­vel­oped to join up with the Bal­liso­dare Walk­way/ Cy­cle way.


Con­grat­u­la­tions to all in­volved in the achieve­ment of Grade A. in the Euro­pean IBAL Sur­vey. The fol­low­ing is the com­ment of the ad­ju­di­ca­tors ‘ One of the most strik­ing fea­tures of this school was the level of plant­ing. Clearly it is a much loved and re­spected environment – the grounds were in very good or­der with colour­ful plant­ing and green­ery through­out. The paving area di­rectly out­side the school grounds was also in very good con­di­tion. Scoil Eanna Cearra Rua was a top-rank­ing site through­out.’
