Prosperous is falling behind other towns in Kildare in terms of infrastructure, amenities and services. With a population of over 2,500, the town should have basic amenities but this is not the case.
Fianna Fáil Rep, Naoise Ó Cearúil stated that “The situation in Prosperous is beyond a joke at this stage. There are no simple facilities for families or for residents of the town such as picnic benches, a playground or adequate lighting”.
The main amenity in the town is a footpath that surrounds the town and this is where the majority of people go for a walk. However this walk is posing a risk as there is no lighting on the footpath and an accident is sure to occur if this is not resolved.
