Members of the Community Council have met with the Cork County Council’s Senior Area Engineer in relation to concerns about the appalling condition of the footpath from the GAA pitch to the road to Leemount. At the onsite meeting it was outline to the Engineer that the footpath was now in such a poor state of repair that it is now dangerous and becomes submerged when the road gets flooded and thus forces pedestrians to go on the road and put themselves in danger. Following the meeting a firm commitment was given by the council to address the issue as soon as possible and for the project to be put on the footpath renewal scheme.
At a recent meeting of the West Cork Garda Division,members of the Community Council were briefed on crime figures for the area.
