Stop new quarry in south Kildare

Stop new quarry in south Kildare

Reject planning application 19/1097 for a new quarry in Racefield, Ballyshannon

Why is this important?

Kilsaran have submitted an application Kildare County Council to start a new quarry in Racefield, Ballyshannon.
This is a rural but buoyant neighbourhood that would be blighted if this application were to succeed. There are a lot of farmers in the local area that would be affected, as well as 3 national schools all within a few miles with 1 being only a mile away.
It is this school that would be affected the most, as it is situated at the junction that the 70+ lorries per day would use and would be affected not only by the dust polution but elevated levels of exhaust fumes.
We need your help in sending a signal to the council that this quarry is not wanted.
