The condition of the approach roads to St Maur’s GAA club in Rush, is causing concern to one of the local election candidates in the area.
Independent candidate for the Balbriggan Electoral area, Cathal Boland spoke to
the County Leader, expressing his fears that a tragic accident could well be the upshot of the deplorable condition of the roads, accessing the popular football club. He said, “The condition of the road in all directions to and from St Maur’s GAA club, needs immediate attention, in the form of widening and footpaths put in place. Currently there are no footpaths and the line of vision is extremely poor in places,” he said.
Boland was mindful of the great number of young people using the road in all directions to get to the club, and the presence of the Gael Scoil Ros Eo on the campus, means that there is a steady stream of people, both young and old using the road. “This road should have been upgraded years ago, and the presence of the Gaelscoil here, heightens the need for immediate action by the County Council to address this very serious traffic problem. My fear is that there will be an accident involving young people, which may lead to serious injury, because of this inaction by the local authority and I’m calling on the new County Manager to look, see and act without delay, concluded Boland.
