Safety barriers are needed for visitors to Cullohill mountain

A steep sided embankment from Cullohill village to the mountain walk needs safety barriers for walkers and cyclists, says Cllr John King.

“This is used for the walking festival, and there is quite a serious drop coming down the hill,” he said, at the December meeting of Borris-in-Ossory Mountmellick district.

Laois County Council have agreed to price the work and submit it for funding under a “low cost safety scheme”.
