Access problems have led Laois County Council to paint a yellow box outside Devoy’s house in Ash Trees, Stradbally.
Cllr Paschal McEvoy had requested the road marking.
“That’s perfect, thanks. People had fierce problems getting out of their house,” he told engineer Philip McVeigh at the September district meeting.
The markings will be laid with others after Stradbally roads are resurfaced.
