Local residents are up in arms following a spate of early bonfires last weekend on the corner of Wellmount road and Wellmount Ave. The bonfires have left the green area unusable and dangerous for local children. Despite the attendance of local Gardaí on Friday night the fires were lighting again on Saturday and Sunday.
Corner of Wellmount Rd. and Wellmount Ave.
Wellmount resident and Fianna Fáil (FF) local area representative David Costello said “ I have been in contact with local FF councillor Paul McAuliffe and we are working hard to prevent further incidents in the weeks coming up to Halloween”. “This is the first time we have witnessed fires this early in October. Its dangerous, school children from St Brigids pass through this area on the way to school every day” David said.
