Potholes on the entrance to the Gallows Hill in Ennis are posing a health and safety risk.
Cllr Clare Colleran Molloy (FF) tabled a request for the sections of the footpath on the Kilrush Rd at the Gallows Hill entrance to be examined for resurfacing “as there are serious gaps and holes that could pose a health and safety risk”.
Senior executive engineer, Eamon O’Dea confirmed that the footpaths would be inspected and included for consideration in this year’s roadworks programme.
“With all the walking I really did notice this particular section, there are potholes on the path, if this could be looked at it would be great,” Colleran Molloy told a meeting of the Ennis Municipal District.
In supporting the motion, Cllr Mark Nestor (FF) commented, “hopefully it will be an issue that can be rectified going into the future”. Cllr Mary Howard (FG) was also in favour of works taking place.
