MORE TREES, LESS TREES, BUS SHELTERS, ZEBRA CROSSINGS, NAME PLATES AND MORE ATTRACTIVE ARCHES DEMANDED FOR LETTERKENNY!

first_imgLETTERKENNY town Council may have spent almost €1 million upgrading its Main Street but it’s still far from perfect according to local councillors.A number of councillors last night raised motions and questions about the Cathedral Town’s main thoroughfare at the town council meeting.In fact there are no less than SIX changes, upgrades and uprooting needed. First off Cllr Dessie Larkin is not a happy camper about the number of trees lining the street.Instead of stopping at Market Square, Cllr Larkin wants the street to be evergreen right down to Lower Main Street.And trees are also on Cllr Victor Fisher’s mind.He has a major problem with the tree outside the town’s post office and claims it is blocking the view of drivers who can’t see people crossing the road. And speaking of road crossings, Cllr Jim Lynch is far from happy at the state of the ornate arches under which Letterkenny folk are passing to cross the road.Cllr Lynch wants something or even anything done with the arches more attractive or even more practical!If road crossings are your thing, then Cllr Gerry McMonagle wants the town council to place zebra crossings at….err……well every crossing.The newly erected seats on the Main Street may be a welcome resting place but they haven’t been quite ‘signed off’ on just yet.Cllr Victor Fisher is demanding that the names of some of the town’s best known residents including the late Dick Duffy, Dr.John Farrelly, Johnny Gallagher and Nora McConnell be inscribed on the seats as had been agreed. And finally, if it’s a bus you’re waiting for on the Main Street, then Cllr Fisher is again your only man.He is demanding that a bus shelter be placed outside the post office.Which kind of makes you wonder ……..why all this wasn’t done before the cheque was signed off on for the developers of the Main Street’s refurbishment?Another €100,000 of taxpayer’s money should do it!
