The committee are finalising plans to get the signs and text alert system up and running. A newsletter will be distributed shortly outlining what is planned for the Ballyroan area. The text alert system is up and running in other local areas including the Heath, Timahoe and Rathineska and has proved successful in giving people in those areas peace of mind.
