Spreed ramps, a blocked gully and a field that has become ‘commonage’ were all issues raised by town councillors in relation to Pattison’s Estate Mountmellick.
The gully was blocked in Pattison Estate, said Cllr Ollie Payne who also stressed that the estate needed speed ramps a demand that, he recalled, had been continuing for 20 years.
Speaking at the same meeting of Mountmellick Town Council, Cllr Paddy Bracken, council chairman, promised to raise the matter with the relevant officials at Laois County Coucil to see if anything could be done.
Cllr Payne: “The kids use the estate for speed.”
Staying in Pattison estate, he said there had been a “semi-commitment” to fence off a field in the area.
“It’s used for horses. It’s now a commons,” he said.
Cllr Marc Connolly said Twomey Park was also affected.
