Fitzgerald: “there is a green space fronting the road that would be ideal for such a sign that could be nicely designed and set in the ground”.He added that residents also want all the driveways in the estate signposted.“The Council said this would be done, but so far nothing has happened. This request was made some years ago, and I again spoke to the Director of Services only last week and he said the signs would definitely be replaced.“Its unfair for people coming in looking for an address and there are no names on the driveways. They have to drive around and ask for directions.“I would like to point out that the Council has put up a sign opposite the Shannon Banks estate pointing people to Limerick and Killaloe, which I found amusing – surely people living in the estate know which direction is Limerick and which is Killaloe. This signpost was put up in recent weeks.“Residents are asking how this can be done so fast and their request for proper street signs has so far been ignored”, he added.Local candidates for the upcoming elections have been extremely active in the general Corbally area of late, and has resulted in many improvements.center_img Facebook WhatsApp Print Previous articleTwo detained following pub shootingNext articleArt Gallery ideal for polling -Leddin adminlast_img
