AFTER many years, the public car park at Our Lady Queen of Peace Church in Janesboro is scheduled to receive a full re-surfacing by Limerick City and County Council in the coming weeks.

Fine Gael Senator Kieran O’ Donnell and newly elected local Janesboro councillor Sarah Kiely told the Limerick Post this week that this resurfacing will take place next month.

“I have been working together with my colleague, local Janesboro-based councillor Sarah Kiely on this matter for a number of months. We made representations to Limerick City and County Council on the very poor state of the large public car park at Our Lady Queen of Peace Church and the need for proper re-surfacing works to take place here,” said Senator O’Donnell.

“We are delighted to have been informed today by Limerick City and County Council that this much needed resurfacing of the Janesboro church public car park is due to take place in July. Having such a large public parking facility in the Janesboro area is great for the community, but, the surface must be up to standard, which shortly will be the case.”

According to first-time councillor for Limerick City East, Sarah Kiely, the dire condition of this sizeable public car park at Janesboro church was a big issue with residents during her election campaign.

“From a health and safety perspective as well as visual one, this resurfacing will make a huge difference to residents, churchgoers and businesses in my local area. I will continue to follow-up with the Council on this and other matters in my role as an newly elected Councillor for the area.  Delivering for the people I represent is my main focus,” Cllr Kiely concluded.
