Controversial Tralee laneway to be closed

A decision has finally been made to close the lane way between two estates in Tralee at last night’s town council meeting. The controversial laneway between Number 1 Gallows Field and Number 15 Cahermoneen will no longer be open to the public due to the on going problem of anti-social behavior there.The alternative route which is proposed involves walking southeast from Gallows Field roundabout crossing Cloonanorig, turning right into St Brendans Park and then continuing along the existing footpaths. Residents of Cahermoneen and the Gardai were in favor of this closure. However Gallows Field resident Mary O Brein says they are apposed to the closure, as this proposed route would put children walking to school in greater danger.
