The Loch Na Lúir community have been praised as the new footpath outside the local school was unveiled following years of campaigning!
Cllr Michael Mac Giolla Easbuig congratulated the community on receiving their new footpath and commended locals for their hard work. “I am glad I was able to be apart of the community response when the council didn’t replace our footpath to the school when the last leg of the Glen road was getting tarred,” said Mac Giolla Easbuig.
A protest took place in October 2016 calling for a new footpath to be put in place at the school after concerned parents said that after road improvements, the existing footpath was effectively removed presenting a danger to students and their parents walking to school.
“When a community organises itself, I strongly believe we can achieve anything we set our minds to. And also well done to the children who came out to voice their opinion for their opinion is equally as important as adults,” concluded Mac Giolla Easbuig.Tags:
