Scoil Ui Earchain – Finglas Gaelscoil

Motion in the name of Councillor Bill Tormey

Scoil Ui Earchain has asked that changes are made to the traffic management at their school gates on Glasnaion Road.

1. Installation of a box junction in front of the school to lessen the congestion in the immediate vicinity of the school while also enhancing the safety of pedestrians in this area.

2. Appointment of a crossing warden at peak times to reduce the risk to all pedestrians, pupils and members of the public alike, from the traffic congestion in this area.

3. Installation of permanent bollards to enclose the tarmac area in front of the school, thus restricting access to cars and creating a safe waiting area for the pupils.


1. A request for a yellow box has been referred to TAG for examination.

2. The request for a School Warden has been referred to TAG for examination.

3. Bollards are not recommended at this location. Road Maintenance have indicated that the footpath is too narrow for bollards. Restricting parking at this location would shift the issue to adjoining streets and property.
