DE Vesci Court in Portlaoise needs a speed ramp as there have been “a couple of near misses” with children almost being hit by cars.

So said Cllr Alan Hand at the recent town meeting, where he pointed out there was a huge section of road that did not get a speed ramp.

“There’s nowhere for children to play,” he said.

A reply from PJ Dempsey of the Roads Department said that a review will be carried out at De Vesci Court, including an examination of existing traffic patterns and available accident or collision data.
