Councillor Seamus Morris asks council to tackle parking at Dromineer, Nenagh

North Tipperary County Council has been urged by Cllr Seamus Morris to put a proper parking policy in place at Dromineer.

The Sinn Fein councillor said that he raised the issue of indiscriminate parking in the lakeside village with the council last year and with the tourist season almost here, he urged the council to speed up the process.

“Dromineer has plenty of parking, but it is totally indiscriminate with private houses and even slipways for boats being blocked by careless parking,” he said.

Cllr Morris said the actions of these drivers was ruining people’s ability to enjoy all that Dromineer had to offer.

He also revealed that he had asked the council to put proper signage in Dromineer to show that animals were not allowed into the water where bathing was taking place.

Meanwhile, Cllr Morris welcomed the council’s decision to allocate E9,000 towards Puckane village park amenity. The funding comes after the project was assessed last week by area engineer Peter Fee, who also saw the possibility of draining flooding from the centre of the village into a soak pit near the park.

“I am delighted that the hard working committee have been assisted by North Tipperary County council to see their project over the line,” he said.

He also said that the poles for the hazard warning lights outside Puckane National School were being put in place and Mr Fee was also looking at removing some hedging that is restricting safe viewing for pupils and parents.
