Sinn Féin Councillor Joanna Byrne has welcomed a commitment from Louth County Council that will see an improvement in the upkeep of many of the historical areas around Drogheda town.
Cllr Byrne said “Sinn Féin have been in contact with LCC Operations Department for some months now demanding action especially coming into the tourist season. I can confirm that works will start next week.”
“The bottom of the Grove Hill area which is located just off the carriageway linking the north and south of the town has become an eye-sore for pedestrians and motorists alike. This area will be tidied up and weeded. There is a monument on that area to the Hunger Strikers which many tourists and residents like to visit including myself so I especially welcome that.”
With this being the height of our tourist season Joanna Byrne said “the grass areas around two beautiful areas of our town, Millmount and Magadeline Tower will also be tended to. The new maintenance contractor will commence work on Monday and we should see a significant improvement over the coming weeks. Drogheda is a gem in the eye of tourists and residents alike and this will go some way to restoring the town to its full glory”.
