Access To The Green Road Laragh

Notice has been given by Derrybawn House that Derrybawn Bridge remains open to all light traffic and pedestrians.  It has been advised that restricted vehicle traffic to that of not more than 5 ton gross weight and 10kmh. This means that cars and vans under this weight have unrestricted access to the Bridge.

Pedestrians are not affected by this limitation and have full access to the Green Road at all times.

We have regrettably had to place bollards at the entrance to the Bridge to ensure that this limit is adhered to and thereby ensure that one and all are able to enjoy this historical structure in safety. We appreciate that this is the height of the tourist season but we are unfortunately subject to the depth and flow of the river which is at its lowest at this time of the year.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused and hope that the bridge will soon be restored to a safe and original condition. If any further information is required please do not hesitate to contact me by email or phone on 0874861683.

Citizens Information

 The Citizens Information Centre at the Brockagh Resource Centre is open for information relating to your rights and entitlements from 10 am until noon on the first and third Tuesday of each month. The next clinics will take place on Tuesdays 2 nd and 16th July. No appointment is necessary for this free and confidential service.

Tidy Towns

The panel for the biodiversity area has arrived and will be erected very shortly. The next Tidy Towns clean-up will take place on Tuesday 2nd July (meet at 7 pm outside Lynhams). Judging will be ongoing over the next two months, so it is important everyone makes a special effort to keep the Laragh-Glendalough area looking clean and tidy.
