Principal of Carlow school says she’s petrified someone will be killed on the road outside their school

The principal of St Michael’s National School in Newtown Borris says they’re terrified, worried and petrified someone will be killed at their school when dropping off or picking them up.

Marie Therese Ryan made a plea to the Joint Policing Committee in Carlow for support to push their case up the Education Department’s list of priorities for funding to carry out safety works there.

Currently there are 29 families dropping off children at the school, but as it’s a regional road it causes a bottle neck of traffic as people are parking out on the road.

Marie Therese says if the school tries to fund raise for the money it will take 10 years as there are only 46 children there.
