Dangerous Bend near Clonsilla Train Station

With the Covid 5k restrictions in place it has been difficult not seeing family. However, that said, it has also forced us to explore locally and helped us to meet (socially distant of course) and get to know locals living in our area. We’ve all been home more with lockdown which does bring back the age old question of work/life balance!

Anyway, I digress. I started cycling to Beechpark Clonsilla with Martin and Paul too sometimes. The most direct route has an extremely dangerous bend caused to be a problem by an entrance to 2 houses. The owners of the houses decided to take it upon themselves to block off the link of the new cycle and pedestrian path to the existing one. I assume this is because they see it as their entrance. Surely blocking pedestrians and cyclists from crossing their entrance is illegal? How often do they enter and exit their homes and even at that, surely people are only passing by and not stopping and standing in their way!

Hopefully something can be done to improve this very dangerous bend. If you follow my tweet you’ll see Cllr Aaron O’ Rourke and TD Paul Donnelly have already started working on it. Thank you both for your prompt action!
