Locals in Portumna concerned about dangerous footpath

Locals in Portumna have written to a Galway TD about the conditions of the footpaths along the Shannon Road.

Galway East TD Ciaran Cannon says paving along the route has fissured in a number of places and is a cause of concern for locals.

Among other problems, the paving at the lower end of the road has become covered with moss which makes it difficult to walk on.

Minister Cannon says that he has also seen images of the upper end of the paving, near the junction of Abbey Street and Dominic Street, showing clearly that it has fissured.

The Fine Gael TD said: “This section runs along just outside Marian Park which has a number of residences and the residents use this path daily to take their children to school or when out and about shopping or on business.

“This route is also used by the people who avail of the services at St Dympna’s Adult Day Service and by locals who take leisure walks to the swimming area at the lower end of Shannon Road.”

Minister Cannon is urging Galway County Council to carry out an inspection on the footpaths along the road.
