Moloney seeks Improvements for Ballydrehid & Kilmoyler

The Ballydrehid area was the topic of 2 motions at the recent Clonmel /Cahir Municipal Monthly meeting.

Councillor Andy Moloney had a motion before the council to improve sightlines at the Cahir side of Ballydrehid school. He claimed that several parents have had near misses at the school when dropping of Children as oncoming traffic cannot see cars pulling out from the school. He suggested to the council that the high bank should be removed and replaced with a fence to help matters.

The Engineer in his report to the meeting suggested that the NRA should be contacted with regards funding and an overall plan as the NRA have standards they need to comply with. Moloney debated that there is no need to be acquiring land or going to extremes but the replacement of the bank could sort the problem without interfering with any lands.

He welcomed the decision of the NRA to get involved but reserves the right to challenge the works to be carried out.

Also on the table for debate was the lack of signage at the Bridge at Dranganmore/Kilaldriffe where the sign has corroded and the lack of direction at this junction is causing visitors to the area who might be attending the church or graveyard to be going around in circles. The engineer gave a commitment to look at signage in this area but it could be more in the line of Cul de Sac as directional signage already exists at the Kilmoyler turn off.
