Local Sinn Féin Councillor Matt Carthy welcomed the introduction of reduced Speed Limits at Donaghmoyne Village which encompass the church, school and community centre. The Sinn Féin Councillor had proposed the matter at a meeting of Monaghan County Council’s Speed Limit Committee following a meeting he attended with the local community in Donaghmoyne Community Centre last March.
Cllr. Carthy confirmed this week that a 60kmph Speed Limit is now in place and enforceable on each of the approaches to Donaghmoyne village.
Cllr. Carthy thanked the area engineer, Alan Hall, for his work on this matter, saying “Donaghmoyne is a busy hub comprising of a school, church and a vibrant community centre which includes a busy childcare facility. It made sense that a reduced speed limit be put in place in this vicinity in order to protect road users and members of the community. I want to thank the members of the Council’s Speed Limit Committee for supporting my proposal especially my fellow South Monaghan Councillors PJ O’Hanlon and Aidan Murray. I also want to thank the other South Monaghan members Noel Keelan and Padraig McNally who ensured the proposal had the full support of Monaghan County Council” Cllr. Carthy concluded.
