Park traffic study comments are sought

The Commissioners of Public Works has commissioned Faber Maunsell Consulting Engineers to conduct a comprehensive study of traffic in the park.

The closing date for submissions was extended to the end of May following local complaints that the original closing date was too close to the announcement of the study.

Results of the survey are expected to go on public display by the end of the summer.

Pressure has been building on the OPW, custodians of the park, to allow the park to be used as a public bus route to ease traffic congestion on surrounding roads.

Submissions may be emailed to the consultants.

four in a row and a football match

On Saturday April 22 author Brendan Nolan was interviewed on Dublin's Phoenix FM in an extended interview. It was the fourth weekend in a row that the book featured in the media.

A local cup match between two teams from St Brigid's GAA club was on that afternoon and Brendan was sandwiched between live match reports, or vice versa.

The programme ran for two and a half hours and is to be edited to a 60-minute interview for re-broadcast whenever the station needs an hour-long show to fill a schedule.

It could go on forever.
