Cllr James Kelly has called on the council to provide road safety measures outside the entrance to St Aengus Football on the New Line Road in Mountrath.

Brenda Cuddy, area engineer said there was no issue with road safety in that area in accordance with the planning application and conditions, but if the club wanted to erect signs, she was more than happy to discuss this with them.

Cllr Kelly said it was a straight stretch of road and he asked Ms Cuddy if the council could put markings on the road to warn motorists to slow down.

Ms Cuddy said there had been no road safety issues at the planning stage but she acknowledged the road was not in great condition and committed to meeting with the club.
