Frank O’Rourke TD and I have secured a commitment from Minister Damien English that no road will be built through St. Catherine’s Park, Leixlip. The commitment comes following a debate specifically on St. Catherine’s Park in Leinster House this week.
I am delighted that the Minister has given his commitment that no road will be built in St. Catherine’s Park. I met with the group fighting to Save St. Catherine’s Park and commend their efforts. Following a recent vote at Kildare County Council, which I sat in the gallery alongside the group to watch the vote and lend my support, we have seen the council take steps to secure the park. I look forward to continuing to work with the Save St. Catherine’s Park committee in keeping pressure on the Department and Minister so that no interference comes from central Government on this matter.
