Online Petition for urgent repair of Caragh Bridge

An online petition calling for the urgent repair of Caragh bridge has attracted more than 750 signatures in a week. The national monument was damaged on August 22nd, and has been closed ever since. A 6 kilometre long diversion route is in place. The petition highlights how businesses and residents in Caragh are being seriously impacted by the closure of the bridge and calls on Kildare County Council to repair it as a matter of urgency. The petition is due to be handed over to the local authority on Tuesday and organisers say they hope to have secured 1,000 signatures before then.
