Speeding Traffic: Despite all that has taken place, the traffic is still speeding through Emyvale at times, including some lorries and motorbikes. There is also a problem with speed on side roads, especially on the road from the Redboys, out past Sruth an Mhuilleann, which is within the 50km speed limit and on the Mullan Road within the 50km limit. We will bring these points to Garda attention. It would be interesting to know how many have been caught on the Main Monaghan road especially since they have varied the location of the Speed van. Be aware - there will be regular Speed Checks on the Main Street any day. Lorries passing through the village have a difficult job at peak times with cars parked on both sides of the street and sometimes badly parked at that. However I do my best to facilitate their passage by pulling in to let them move along and most times they will show appreciation by a shake of the hand as they pass but others just bull on and ignore the fact that I gave them the opportunity to get through the village smoothly. I note the lorries who do acknowledge my assistance.
Flooding: Was it 2014 about the same time of year when flooding happened at Emyvale and August 2020 will be remembered as another flooding episode. Heavy rain for 24 hours brought the Mountain Water over its banks in places and private property was effected and/or threatened with worse. This has become a problem which needs attention and money needs to be spent on cleaning the river at a few points to allow the amount of water which comes down the river, to pass on its swift way within its banks. The river from Gola to Glennan is so much overgrown in places that the width of the river has reduced to a quarter of its original size, which is fine when water flow is normal but, when the flood comes down, the water is backed up at these points and then spills over into adjoining property and out onto roadways, thus blocking traffic and threatening households and other premises. Every effort should be made by our public representatives to get this work done sooner rather than later. You can help by having a word with our representatives.
