This is particularly important in view of the proposed footpath from the village to the cemetery. As many people as possible, of all ages, are asked to fill in the survey, which is self explanatory, and return it within a week to the drop-in boxes at SuperValu, the Post Office or the church porch. Many thanks for your co-operation.

Development Group

Having made representations to Mr James O'Dwyer, senior executive engineer, re the constant breaking of the speed limits through the village of Clondrohid, it was great to hear last week that councillors were told that a VAS sign will be put in place during the summer months.

These signs flash the speed at which a driver is driving at, so hopefully drivers will take more care and slow down when they see their speed flashing in front of them.

For some time now residents have been living in fear that sooner or later a serious accident resulting in death will occur. The Development Group would like to thank Mr O'Dwyer for his support and help in getting this issue recognised.
