Cllr Jim Ryan has called for traffic calming measures to be installed at Marlstone Manor along the straight stretch between house numbers 28-42 where traffic is speeding all the time.

Speaking at a meeting of the Thurles Templemore Municipal District Council, he also asked for the footpaths in Moyne Road to be examined and up-graded as they are in very bad condition.
