Scoil Naomh Feichín in Termonfeckin underwent a transformation during the Easter holidays, with the implementation of new road safety measures.

Vibrant flexi and pencil bollards now adorn key areas outside the school, addressing concerns about parking on footpaths that had made crossing the road challenging, reduced accessibility and obscured visibility for pedestrians and drivers.

"The landscape of Scoil Naomh Feichín was revamped over the Easter holidays as new road safety measures were put in place," said Parents Council Chairperson Amanda Duggan. "We are absolutely delighted with the result."

"We have been trying to get this in place for some time. It was becoming challenging for children crossing the road but also accessibility on footpaths was becoming an issue due to driver’s partially and in some cases completely blocking footpaths, forcing children and parents to walk out onto the road.”

Independent Drogheda Rural Councillor Declan Power said the project's success was a testament to collaborative efforts and that he was delighted with the outcome.

"Visually we wanted to make a difference and installing our pencil bollards really reflects the school in the area, while improving the safety of children and parents and reducing footpath parking.”

"I think we need to be more forward thinking by doing what we can to ensure safe cycling and walking to school” Cllr Power said.

“Termonfeckin needs pedestrian crossings at prominent locations in the village. Putting these measures in place encourages parents and children to walk or cycle to school safely” Cllr. Power said.

“This is something that I want to pursue for the betterment of the village. I want to thank Louth County Council for their fantastic work and to the Parents Council for their patience and persistence during this project.” 

Reflecting on the project's completion, Ms. Duggan extended her gratitude to all involved. "I also want to thank Louth Co. Council for their work and also to Cllr. Power who had every faith of getting this job over the line when others said it couldn’t be done."
