“This includes €20,000 for footpath works at North Street, Swords. beside the Nursing Home at the lower end of the street. This was badly needed for wheelchair users to access North Street from the Nursing Home, something I pursued with the Council. Another project which was pursued by me was the footpath at Mountgorry, which was badly needed due to the increased traffic flow in the area recently. I’m delighted that €15,000 has been allocated to provide a footpath here,” said Newman.
