Limerick City and County Council have informed Willie O’Dea TD that they have agreed to carry out a feasibility study on the need for a pedestrian crossing on the Old Cratloe Road at the entrance to Shannonvale.Willie O’Dea TD said, “Many residents of Shannonvale and surrounding areas had requested that a pedestrian crossing be placed outside their estate.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Myself and Pat O’Neill have since met with senior engineers within the Council and have now been assured that a feasibility study will be done in the area and if a pedestrian crossing is warranted, the Council will apply for funding from the Department to do the job.The news has been welcomed by Local Fianna Fáil activist Pat O’Neill as well as the Fianna Fáil TD who have been working on the issue on behalf of local residents.Pat O’Neill who had helped secure the pedestrian crossing on the Clonmacken road said, “It was imperative that we acted as soon as residents brought this issue to our attention. The safety of local residents is paramount as there are a lot of elderly residents and young families living within the estate and for them to enjoy the convenience of the local amenities, their safety in crossing what is a very busy road needs to be taken into account.Pat concluded, “We have speed ramps in the area, but these are not serving their purpose and I have also asked the council to look at the height and shape of these, as some have caused damage to the undercarriage of cars due to being so severe.” Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow TAGSLimerick City and CountyNewspolticisShannonvaleTransport NewsPoliticsTransportFeasibility Study approved for for road safety measures at ShannonvaleBy Staff Reporter – June 18, 2019 224 Facebook Previous articleLeggy Limerick & Stars of the Future- Talking points after Tipperary defeatNext articleTies between Shannon Free Zone and the Chinese Government stronger than ever Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Linkedin WhatsApp Twittercenter_img Local backlash over Aer Lingus threat Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites Print Limerick on Covid watch list RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement Email Is Aer Lingus taking flight from Shannon?last_img read more

Democrats cheer ‘historic’ win as race is called for Biden and Harris.

first_imgThe specter of a prolonged legal battle could not temper the enthusiasm of Democratic Party leaders who have known and worked with Mr. Biden for years.Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in a statement, said that voters had “elected a unifier who values faith, family and community, and who will work tirelessly to heal our nation.” And Senator Chuck Schumer, the minority leader, said the American people had “placed their faith in Joe Biden and Kamala Harris” to confront challenges posed by the virus, the economy and global warming in the coming years.In statement, Tom Perez, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee said that by electing Mr. Biden, “The American people chose hope” and “dignity and opportunity for all.”“This is a historic victory,” he said.“To the families of those who’ve lost loved ones to COVID-19, and to all our Americans yearning for change, our message is simple: You will finally get the leadership you deserve.”And Hillary Clinton, the former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic nominee who won the popular vote but ultimately lost to Mr. Trump, said voters had issued a “repudiation” of the president and offered a riff on one of his campaign slogans.“Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen,” she said. “Onward, together.” Senator Mitt Romney of Utah, the Republican presidential nominee in 2012, extended his own congratulations to Mr. Biden and Ms. Harris, conferring the titles “president-elect” and “vice president-elect” on them in his tweeted statement.“We know both of them as people of good will and admirable character,” he said. “We pray that God may bless them in the days and years ahead.” Newt Gingrich, the former Republican Speaker of the House and one of Mr. Trump’s staunchest supporters, baselessly insisted that the media had jumped the gun and declared a winner in the race before recounts had started and legal challenges had unfolded.Senator Josh Hawley, Republican of Missouri, similarly objected to the presidential race call on Saturday. “The media do not get to determine who the president is. The people do. When all lawful votes have been counted, recounts finished, and allegations of fraud addressed, we will know who the winner is.”But in one of the first statements to surface from a Republican lawmaker on Saturday, Representative Fred Upton of Michigan affirmed a Biden victory. “I am raising my hand and committing to working with President-elect Biden,” he said.- Advertisement – Representative James Clyburn of South Carolina, whose endorsement as the state’s Democratic primary approached was a key turning point in the race and a huge boost to Mr. Biden said his win “marks a new chapter for our country.”- Advertisement – “As we face unprecedented challenges, Americans have chosen you to lead us out of the chaos and to build a stronger community,” he wrote on Twitter. “Today, I am hopeful for a brighter future.” Emily Cochrane, Catie Edmondson and Luke Broadwater contributed reporting. The Trump campaign, for its part, said it would continue to pursue its legal challenges, and Mr. Trump released a statement in which he said he would “not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands.”- Advertisement – – Advertisement – “I encourage every American to give him a chance and lend him your support,” Mr. Obama said. Maya Harris, Ms. Harris’s sister, immediately invoked the memory of their mother, Shyamala, who the vice-president elect often discussed during the campaign when telling her back story and sharing her values.Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the actress who for years played a female vice president in the HBO comedy “Veep,” made sure to note: “Madam Vice President” is no longer a fictional character.“ And Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida who failed to defeat Mr. Trump in the 2016 Democratic primary, said it was time to “heal deep wounds” and added that he would be “praying” for Mr. Biden’s success.last_img read more

first_imgIt’s safe to say Sergio Ramos didn’t make many new fans after his exploits in the Champions League final.So how does he try and change his villainous, bad boy persona? By turning into football’s answer to Justin Bieber.The Real Madrid defender and Spain captain has released his own World Cup 2018 song alongside Spanish singer Demarco Flamenco, called ‘Otra Estrella en tu Corazon’ – which translates to ‘Another star in your heart’.The lyrics include: “Come on, Spain, raise your voice; scream loudly, shout that goal. Thinking big we will achieve the best, fighting together, towards the star with honour. We have to try. May La Roja shine once more.”Ramos teased the video on his Instagram page and the accompanying music video, complete with boyband-style fist-clenching, has already had over 82,000 views since its release on Friday.This isn’t the first time the 32-year-old has flirted with the pop star life. He also sang lead vocals for Spain’s Euro 2016 song ‘La Roja Baila’ – which is more of a Eurovision ‘classic’ than his latest mid-tempo Spanish ballad. We’ll let you decide for yourself if it’s the best or worst thing since Despacito…last_img read more
