Magennis Secures Long Awaited Footpath for Camlough

Sinn Féin councillor Oonagh Magennis has welcomed news that DFI will soon begin works on a long awaited footpath on the Newtown road in Camlough.

The Slieve Gullion councillor said:

“The campaign for this footpath came about after a young boy was knocked down while crossing the Newtown road between Cashel close and Cloughan court in 2018.

“Following this incident, I met with the family to discuss the road safety issue and to organise a campaign to secure traffic calming measures and ultimately, a much needed footpath for this part of the village.

“After many years of lobbying, DFI have now agreed to build a footpath from Cloughan court, into the village itself.

“This will link the footpath to St. Malachy’s primary school and to the crossing Island before the first roundabout, giving locals a much safer means to cross this busy road.

“This work is scheduled to begin in the next few weeks, however I would continue to urge all driving through the village to do so at a responsible speed to ensure the village is kept safe for all.
