Cllr Cunningham Welcomes Replacement Signage Near School

Tom CunninghamSinn Féin Councillor Tom Cunningham has welcomed the road signage along the Callystown Road in Clogherhead that was knocked down in an accident years ago.

Cllr Cunningham said “The signage had been absent for too long and I asked Louth County Council to replace it last month. They have now completed the work and I welcome that. We needed the signage replaced to warn drivers of the school school ahead. This is a busy road and one of the main routes into Clogherhead. As it is a long stretch of road, drivers were tempted to pick up speed and if they didn’t know the area, would have been at the school before realising it was there. At school times there are a lot of children using the road including some who need to cross the road and there could have been an accident.”

Councillor Cunningham continued “there is also a playground here so it is not just at school times we needed to warn drivers. The fact that the original signage was knocked down in an accident reinforced the need for the sign to be replaced before there was another one. I want to thank Louth County Council for completing this work in a timely manner.”
