Ramelton footpath needs fixing: SF
Sinn Fein Cllr Mick Quinn has called on the Council to carryout essential repairs on the St. Mary’s Terrace footpath in Ramelton. Quinn says the footpath is in a serious state of disrepair with a broken surface that led to elderly residents sustaining nasty falls over a period of time.
Cllr Ian McGarvey also highlighted the poor state of the footpath outside the church. He also pointed out that two years after it was promised a footpath has not be put in place on a section of the Letterkenny Road and also on the Rectory Road.
Cllr Quinn has been told by the Council that in terms of the budget, decisions have be taken between how money is spent on footpaths and roads. At the moment there is no confirmation of funding for St. Mary’s Terrace footpath according to a reply received last week by Cllr Quinn from Area Roads Manager Fergal Doherty. He promised to work with the community groups and FAS in effort to find a way of carrying out the repairs, which the Council hopes can be done in September.
