High wall risk to school children in Laois town council told

A wall should be lowered in Rathdowney because the current height poses a safety risk for children going to school.

He tabled a motion calling for work on the wall at the former Rathdowney Motor Works junction to create better visibility for all road users approaching this junction.

He added that the height at present raisies safety risks for children going to school.
