Brady welcomes footpath repair work in Carnew

Sinn Féin County Councillor John Brady has welcomed the installation of
new footpaths in Emmet Place in Carnew and has said the work is long

Speaking after meeting with council workers onsite Cllr Brady said
"Its great to see the footpath repair work in Emmet Place finally take
place. The poor condition of the footpaths was something that had been
consistently raised on the doors in the area when we carried out a
door to door survey in the area last year"

"The condition of the paths in Emmet Place in Carnew had been
deplorable and had made it very difficult and dangerous for the
elderly residents in the area. I have been raising the need for this
work to be carried out with a number of officials since last year and
i am delighted the now long overdue work has commenced" continued Cllr

Cllr Brady went onto say "A number of issues including the poor
condition of the paths had been raised with us on the doors and this
badly needed work also includes speed ramps on the Coolattin Rd and the
dishing of a number of footpaths in the area to make them more
accessible for elderly people and people with disabilities. The paths
outside Corrells Hardware on the Main St in the town also need to be

Cllr Brady concluded " The work that been carried out in Carnew by the
council has to be welcomed, unfortunately sometimes areas such as
Carnew, Tinahely and Shillelagh are forgotten about because of their
distance from the County Council in Wicklow town. I will however
continue to ensure that the council prioritizes work in these areas"
