Cllr Antóin Watters: Gyles Quay Projects One Step Closer

Cllr Watters said “earlier in the year I had a road safety meeting with Louth County Council and highlighted the junction at Bush Primary School requesting road safety signs and road markings. I am delighted that the school has been awarded €13,500 to enable these works to be carried out.”

There was also good news for Gyles Quay. Cllr Watters said “Local man Niall Ferguson and I met with a Council engineer earlier this year to discuss a project which would see improvements to the Gyles Quay area in the form of an upgrade. Following on from that meeting we have secured €50,000 through Clár and we are looking forward to works starting which will see landscaping, new bins, benches and an upgrade of the public toilets.”

Cllr Watters however was disappointed that his application for a bus shelter at Grange Cross, through Cooley Community Alert, was unsuccessful but promised that “I will continue to pursue all avenues until we have that bus shelter up.”

Cllr Watters concluded “it is always good to see your hard work coming to fruition and this is one of those days. This is a good day for the Peninsula.”

Cllr Watters: Completed Projects Welcomed

Councillor Antóin Watters visited two projects that were recently completed following successful CLÁR Funding applications.

Cllr Watters said “I was delighted to assist Monksland NS and Jenkinstown Project Committee with their applications and it is always great to see the final completed project. It gives a sense of satisfaction to everyone involved and I appreciate the hard work that went into these projects at every level.”

“I am currently working on a number of other projects, that I hope will also be as successful and I wish Monkland NS and the Jenkinstown Project Committee the best of luck going forward.”
