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 read more

She opens with a lot of the popular songs and closes the concert with all Christmas songs. Shelia has an amazing voice and she surrounds herself with excellent talent and her concerts just get better and better.”Radio personality Doc Kirby attended Jackson’s holiday concert for the first time and said, even for Shelia, the concert was “something.”“Usually, I’m away performing so I haven’t had an opportunity to see Shelia’s concert,” Kirby said. “Of course, I know how well she sings. I’ve known her since she was in Jim Bell’s Junior High choir. But had no idea what an incredible extravaganza the concert would be. It reminded me of a Las Vegas show. I was impressed.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Jackson and friends pack Crosby theater Friday for annual concert Published 3:00 am Tuesday, December 16, 2014 Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Print Article Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Latest Stories Email the author Shelia Jackson took the stage of the Claudia Crosby Theater Friday night to the thunderous applause of a packed audience.
