You may have spotted a sign outside Ratoath National School saying that the Fairyhouse Road was due to be closed for 10 days. This information was not correct and the road will not be closed for 10 days. The sign has since been changed to:
Tuesday 10th – Fri 20th Sept
major road works ahead
They will be able to do the basecourse under traffic lights, HRA will need a closure for 2/3 days with a detour in place. Keep an eye on the sign for latest information.
Meath County Council launched its Green Dog Walkers initiative on Monday 17th July 2013 at a gathering of dog-owners, community groups and local residents in Ashbourne.
Green Dog Walkers is a Regional programme involving South Dublin County Council, DunLaoghaire-Rathdown County Council, Fingal County Council, Wicklow County Council and Meath County Council. The initiative aims to tackle the problem of dog fouling in parks, in housing estates, playgrounds, beaches and all public areas.
You may have noticed it's a little easier to find your way home of late? We recently had all the signs in the estate professionally cleaned to remove years of grime. Just one of the ways BMML is working hard to make The Old Mill a nicer place to live and improve the value of your home.
If you want to get in touch with the Directors of BMML, you can email us at our new address email@example.com. Emails are answered by a volunteer member of our Board who will endeavour to respond within two weeks.
It's a problem that gets on lots of people's nerves - the scourge of dog owners who don't clear up after their pets. So, what can be done to rid streets and parks of their mess?
The signs are easy to spot - the flattened deposit bearing the imprint of a shoe, the anxious parent quickly steering their offspring to one side, the man repeatedly wiping his foot on the verge as if kick-starting a decrepit motorbike.
I spotted this on a recent trip to Chicago and it struck a chord. The folks from The Morton Arboretum who posted this sign calculate that "homes in neighborhoods with mature trees sell for at least 10 percent more than in neighborhoods without trees." That's got to be good!
