Meath Co Council's Anti Litter League commenced this week (Mon 6 Feb) and will run over the coming 8 weeks. Volunteers in high visibility tabards are currently out on the roads in Julianstown picking up litter. On our first morning we filled 12 black sacks!

The ditches tell a gruesome story - more bott...

JulianstownJulianstown Experience Repeated (20.12.2005, 15:00 UTC)
Deja Vu in Clonard. History repeats itself with the opening of the new M4 complete with toll. The locals in small "bypassed" villages are scratching their heads as they watche HGVs thunder through their communities. A massive raod development fails to deliver quality of life to people living on the old route. This is the second national route toll opened after Drogheda; and it is clear that no lessons have been learnt 2 and a half years on. Here's how it will go: 1/ Local reps will ...

Scotch Hall opened to much fanfare last Thursday. There were good things and bad things. The traffic chaos did not emerge as was predicted by many doomsayers. On the other hand the parking charges are punitive keeping many motorists away. There are a LOT of security guards. Obviously the management are expecting shoplifters of the world to unite in Drogheda now that Scotch Hall is opened. The only other negative is that it is now very difficult to get parking on the North quays on a Friday n...
