Meenan looks at safer parking solutions at Gaelscoil
Sinn Féin’s Cllr Kevin Meenan has called on Dundalk Town Council to come up with safer parking solutions at Gaelscoil Dhun Dealgan in Muirhevnamor.
The all-Irish school is popular with pupils and parents from all over the area because of its specialised nature. That leads to a large number of cars forming in the estate when students are entering and leaving the school. That, coupled with the natural traffic flow of the estate, leads to huge vehicular traffic in that part of Muirhevnamor at key times of the day.
Parents have become concerned about the number of cars that their children having to walk through to get collected from school and have asked Cllr Meenan to look at ways of dealing with the problem before an accident occurs.
He told LMFM that a number of parents had been on to him about the problem. He said he would now talk to council engineers to look at safer parking solutions near to the school. He has already met with the school’s principal and is welcoming further feedback from the public after claiming there were a number of “near misses” in recent times.
