Footpath concerns raised in Kilkishen


A CALL has been made for an extension to the footpath opposite the GAA pitch in Kilkishen, in the interests of safety.
The motion was tabled by Councillor Alan O’Callaghan, who told a meeting of the Killaloe Municipal District that the current situation is causing inconvenience for pedestrians.
“If the council could cover this with black top, that would be great,” he said.
“It’s not very long or wide and a small amount would go a long way. As it stands now, people with buggies still have to come out onto the road and that’s a situation that can’t continue.”
In a written response, Senior Executive Engineer (SEE) Niamh Madden noted that the allocation for works to footpaths in the district has been significantly reduced for this year. “The footpath in question is currently a gravel footpath and should funding become available throughout the year, the Killaloe Municipal District will consider surfacing this pathway,” the reply said.
