Councillor Michelle Hall.
Labour Councillor Michelle Hall has asked for traffic calming measures to be installed in Tullyallen.
Her request came about after she was contacted by the Tullyallen Road Safety Committee and Tullyallen National School.
Councillor Hall has subsequently received confirmation from senior engineers in Louth County Council that a pedestrian count will be carried out in the next two weeks and the most recent traffic and speed count will also be examined.
"This is a busy and long straight stretch of road with over 500 children in Tullyallen N.S. crossing it daily.

“There are no pedestrian crossings and there are real fears that a tragic accident will occur. I hope that Louth County Council will install effective measures to reduce speed and take pedestrian safety seriously.
There has been an increase in material damage to vehicles in Louth this year according to a report from the Joint Policing Committee and I don't want to see an increase in injury to any persons that could be prevented," Cllr Hall said.
