Deputy MacSharry calling for immediate removal of bollards at Strandhill

Sligo/Leitrim TD Marc MacSharry is calling on Sligo County Council and An Garda Siochana in Sligo to agree to immediately remove the bollards that have prevented parking in the area overlooking the sea at Strandhill.

The bollards were originally erected as part of Covid prevention measures.

However, there have been strongly divergent views about keeping the bollards, with some people claiming they are causing congestion in the area.

Deputy MacSharry says the bollards should be removed immediately, particularly as it’s now the peak tourism season, with the majority of people vaccinated against Covid.
