“This is despite the fact that there is a clear accident history and huge demand for such action.”



The Sinn Féin representative continued, “We are determined to keep raising this issue.

“My Sinn Féin colleagues in the local Toal-Harte Cumann will be erecting improved signage in the Rathgullion and Tobar Blinne Estates in Meigh and also Parkview in Newtowncloughoge.



“This is a very practical measure that can be taken but we as a community must continue to highlight our grave concerns and challenge the Roads Department to take action to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the local community, pedestrians and motorists,” she added.
