Additional car parking spaces requested for growing Laois school

The case for additional car parking spaces has been made for an expanding Laois school.

The plight of Rath NS was raised at a recent meeting of the Graiguecullen-Portarlington Municipal District.

Cllr Paschal McEvoy called on the Council to meet with management at the Ballybrittas based school to assess car parking facilities at the school.

He said: “The school has become much bigger in recent times.

“They need more parking and it really is a necessity now.

“Perhaps we could look at removing part of the ditch or something like that to create extra space.”

Area engineer Philip McVeigh agreed to the meeting.

He said: “Laois County Council would be very pleased to meet with the school management to review the parking facilities at the school.”
