The Yellow Paint Ambush!

July 30, 2013 0

At 06:20 this morning and working on behalf of Fingal County Council, a Line Crew proceeded to place yellow lines outside the front row of Chapel Gate contrary to agreement between FCC and residents. Workers refused to stop as they maintained they were instructed to carry out the work. Residents were extremely angry with what they felt was a break of trust by FCC.

Cllr Snowe was horrified to think that the group had been lied to by County Officials but after speaking with Martin Sweeney he thinks it was a genuine mistake. Cllr Snowe managed to get the line crew to speak with Martin and following this conversation the worked ceased.

Cllr Snow said that he has been assured by Martin Sweeney that no further lining will take place without consultation and the lines laid this morning will be removed.
