Sinn Féin local election candidate Conor D. McGuinness has expressed concerns about a gap in the perimeter wall in the new Highfield Estate, which he says posed a danger to children.
 
McGuinness said:
 
“There is a gap in the wall between the new Highfield Estate and the N25, which poses a very real risk to children. Pedestrian chicanes, or slow-down railings, have been installed, however these do not provide a sufficient obstacle for children. As the weather gets better children will be spending more time outside and this is to be welcome. Having a wide open gap between a a busy national primary route and new housing estate with young families is not good design, and I am calling on the Council to install a swing back gate or similar in the interests of safety. “
