Laois councillor takes to facebook to get street lights fixed

A county councillor has got a big response to the repair of street lights.

Cllr Paschal McEvoy from Stradbally took to social media to encourage people to report broken lights.

“With the nights getting longer and the clocks going back this weekend, if the bulbs are gone from the street lighting adjacent to your home, or pedestrian routes,please private message ( PM ) me or email me with your light number (number on pole ) and address,” he stated in a post on his facebook site.

He got a largely positive response.

“That the "Light" of Heaven may shine on you Paschal for thinking ahead and outside the box, good idea to have plans and provisions in store and ready to go,” replied one post.
