Arising out of the very heavy rainfall of recent weeks a number of flooding issues were raised at the monthly meeting of Thurles Town Council. They included; Cabra Road and the entrance to The Glebe ( Cllrs Jim Ryan and Noel Dwyer); Kickham Street and Mitchel Street and also shores blocked at Loughtagalla ( Cllr John Kenehan); Oakfield Drive (Cllr Evelyn Nevin); and Collins Park (Cllr Michael Cleary).
Councillor Noel Dwyer welcomed the new speed limit sign on Bohernamona Road and said that it is very effective. He wondered if another could be put closer to the junction. Cllr David Doran meanwhile wondered when the speed sign at Loughtagalla would be erected and Cllr Kennedy had a similar enquiry for Abbey Road. The signs are very expensive and must go to tender,Engineer Mr Ruairi Boland informed them both.
