Councillor Annemarie Logue has urged people to be safe when using Crumlin Glen.

Crumlin Councillor Anne Marie Logue has called on people using Crumlin Glen to keep safe while ongoing works take place to repair storm damage to walkways and railings.

The Sinn Fein Councillor said that the recent bad weather has caused damage to the Glen.

“Several sizable trees have fallen causing damage to pathways, railings and steps. The worst of the damage is below the Cockle House steps at the bottom of the waterfall where the path and steps were ripped up and the railing smashed to smithereens by a large tree and roots system giving way,” Cllr. Logue said.

She added: “I appreciate that the Rivers Agency, who I have been in touch with have been prompt to act over the damage and have already removed blockages to paths.

“The Glen is still open and many families, walkers, dog owners and runners are still using it. It is a fabulous resource for the town and I would urge people accessing the glen not to pass into restricted areas that are cordoned off with red and white tape until these areas are made safe.”
