Cllr Cunningham said “The alleyway is between two estates: Gort Uaine and John Kirk Estate and it’s a wide path that is enticing to children on bicycles or just running to speed through it. Unfortunately, at both ends, there are busy roads and a few times the kids weren’t able to stop. There have been a few close calls and thankfully no-one was hurt but it was an accident waiting to happen.”
The alleyway in question is beside the primary school main entrance which is in the John Kirk Estate.
Cllr Cunningham said “The Council have erected a safety barrier at the John Kirk side and will have the Gort Uaine end done early next week. It is a very simple thing but child safety is a priority and this could help save a life.”
