Frank O’Rourke TD is delighted that the footpath upgrade and improvements on the Maynooth road in Celbridge is near completed.

Frank commented, “This is an issue raised with me by the many people who use this footpath and it’s a project which I have been working to have completed for some time with my colleague Cllr Michael Coleman.”

“This project was put forward to be funded from the retained L.P.T money. Projects such as this would not be carried out without this funding stream. It is important that L.P.T money is invested in the local area and community to give benefit to everyone.”

“Michael and I will continue to work to secure further funding to improve and upgrade our footpath and road network. We must have a high quality footpath infrastructure to encourage people to walk and exercise more.”

“I want to thank Kildare County Council area staff for their assistance in delivering this project and the many people who raised this issue with me.”

I will continue to make representations on behalf of the Residents and work with the Council until the snagging is complete to enable the Council to advertise these Estates in order for them to go through the statuary process of been taken-in-charge by K.C.C.”

“I look forward to continuing this work with my Colleague Cllr. Michael Coleman until this process is completed.”

Cllr Frank O’Rourke welcomes new 67 Bus service

Cllr Frank O’Rourke is delighted to inform the people of Celbridge and the surrounding area that there will be an additional 67 Dublin Bus service from Celbridge to Maynooth at 8.15am Monday to Friday.

“I received numerous requests from the public to help improve this service. This will assist the commuters who use Dublin Bus each morning and have found it very difficult in recent days and weeks due to the large numbers using this service. This will give all commuters that need to use this service at this time each day certainty and comfort for their journey.”

“We need to continue to invest and improve public transport to assist those that use it and to encourage more to use our public transport. Thanks to Dublin Bus for working with me on upgrading this 67 service on behalf of the public transport user.”
