Freedom Travel Opens New Premises

I was delighted to have been invited to attend the opening of Freedom Travels New Premises today in Celbridge. I wish Ciara and her “Team” continued success in the years ahead. It’s great to see Ciara expand to a lovely new office located at St. Wolstans Shopping Centre. Great evening enjoyed by all with nice food, drinks, music and all in the presence of great and loyal people. Congrats also to Ciara’s Mam and Dad



Motions and Questions for the May Celbridge/Leixlip Municipal Area Meeting


1. That the Council re-instate all the cycle lanes on the approach roads to both Celbridge and Leixlip towns where the cycle lanes currently exist within the 50KM speed limit zones.

Answer: The Council will re-instate the cycle lanes in Celbridge and Leixlip as necessary. They will now include this into their work programme.

2. That the council replace the “Celbridge” sign located before the entrance to Crodaun No. 2 on the Maynooth road to enhance the entrance to Celbridge.

Answer: The Council have agreed to remove this sign as it is unnecessary. This will further improve this general area.


1. Can the Council look to restrict traffic for an agreed time period from entering the Hazelhatch Road as you exit Celbridge as a trial\pilot to see if it will assist in alleviating traffic congestion at this location during peak times.

Answer: After a detailed submission on my part, the Council will consider carrying out this trial in an effort to alleviate traffic congestion in this area at peak time. I will continue to keep this long outstanding issue as a main priority for me.

2. Can the Council carry out repairs to the kerbs\footpath at the junction outside the Bank of Ireland in Celbridge.

Answer: The Council have agreed to have these repairs carried out.
