Footpath works currently being carried out along the Gorey to Courtown road are expected to take three weeks to complete.

The path will be extended by another 100metres more and it is hoped to make further extensions when funding allows. Once complete there will be a path linking Gorey to Courtown.

However the project isn't without its challenges as there will be an issue bringing the path up the brickyard hill because of the slope at the side.

The works which are along the R742 Courtown Road are at Tomsilla and Fairy Lane. There will be traffic lights in place daily between 8 a.m. until 6 p.m.
