‘Works begin on extension to Public Footpath to Lucan Sarsfields’ - Fitzgerald

Frances Fitzgerald, local TD and Minister for Justice and Equality, has welcomed the commencement of the extension to the footpath on the Newcastle Road to Lucan Sarsfields.

Fitzgerald stated “earlier in the year I welcomed confirmation by South Dublin County Council that a footpath running from the Lock Road to Lucan Sarsfields GAA club would be installed.
“A number of parents whose children attend the club contacted me in relation to the need for the footpath and cycle-path to be extended to the club. I made a direct representation to the Council requesting that the footpath and cycle path on the Lock Road be extended to the club grounds to allow safer and easier access for everyone, particularly children.

“The extension of the footpath will allow children and parents from Lucan safe pedestrian access to the club. I have been advised that the cycle path on the Lock Road will be extended to the club grounds once nearby road widening works are finished. This is good news for local sports players and parents of children.”
