Speed Ramps "The Only Answer" To Deal With Increased Traffic In Fore

Fore Abbey

A local councillor says over 1,000 people visited the Westmeath village on Sunday.

Ramps are the only answer to deal with increased traffic in Fore. 

Councillor Frank McDermott says over 1,000 people visited the Westmeath village on Sunday. 

While gardaí have been helpful, he’s "very, very worried" about speed in the town. 

He’s calling for a ramp outside the school and one outside the coffee shop - a move which will be considered by local authority engineers. 

The Fine Gael rep says if he won the Lotto, he’d move the old east and west gate onto the road and only allow one vehicle to pass at a time.
