NORTHERN DISTRIBUTOR ROAD SUBMISSION

Posted 8 months ago, 28 Mar 2017 by Cathal Mc Carthy Profile Cathal Mc Carthy

The Northern Distributor road is now being backed by various well-known companies such as Johnson and Johnson and Northern Trust. They are also able to outline the great advantages the new road will bring both to Limerick and Clare. Our local Councillors need to vote with us and not against us, to help An Board Pleanala make the right decision in going ahead with the road. Rejection of the project would be a major setback for both business and the public. The new road will allow job creation and easier access to UL bringing much needed business and tourism to the city, As well as enticing other large companies to relocate here. After all there was only 3 Councillors that voted for this road, Councillor Daly, Councillor Leddin, and Councillor Gilligan. The general public take their hats off to these Councillors for there’s votes in supporting the road, having the future of limerick and county Clare in mind. After all you have to admire Clare, as they voted for it, the only thing holding us back is An Board Pleanala and Limerick City Council. Limerick regeneration watch chairperson, Cathall McCarthy and Tom Daly were at meetings Almost a decade ago now about this road, where John Fitzgerald said this road was vital for limerick and the progression of the city. He also said that the north distributor road would put an end to the cul-de-sac in Moyross which was facilitating the anti-social behaviour. Due to the fact the Garda access is limited to 1 way in and the same way out. When making the decision about this road An Board Pleanala need to take into consideration the beneficial factors this road would bring to the city now and also for future generations to come. This is our submission from the limerick regeneration watch and the Moyross residence alliance

Posted 9 months ago, 16 Feb 2017 by Cathal Mc Carthy Profile Cathal Mc Carthy

Its coming up to 10 years now, and the people of Moyross are waiting on the council and government bodies to end the cul-de-sac of Moyross, Meaning to Northern Distributor Road from Coonagh to Knocklasheen. This is vital for the people of Moyross and the north side, you have Councillors complaining and objecting and saying that it is an unnecessary development. '' This is crazy '' Said Tom Daly, Chairperson of the MRA, '' the people of the North side want this road to go ahead ''. It was in the Fitzgerald report when it came out in the regeneration plan. John Fitzgerald said the most important thing was to end the cul-de-sac of Moyross. Nearly 10 years on their are still Councillors in Clare and Limerick objecting. I just cant believe that these people are doing this, i hope in time they will see the good that the building of this road will bring, and the amount of job opportunities that will arise because of it. (Let common sense prevail). Tom Daly, Chairperson, MRA.
