Kilmochunna dust problem
Click to enlarge.
Kilmochunna cemetery has a scenic setting. However, it is adjoined by a quarry belonging to Banagher Concrete. A huge amount of sand and gravel is extracted and there is a constant stream of lorries.
Unfortunately these lorries are covered in fine white dust and leave a cloud of dust behind them.
The road is dusty and the wheels arouse another cloud of dust from the road.
A token watering vehicle drops a small amount of water onto the road, which is merely a gesture towards resolving the problem.
Beautiful residences along the Kilmachonna Road are plagued every day by this nuisance.
It would take but a little real effort to solve the problem: lorries to be hosed down on every exit from the Banagher site, and a vehicle with a wide water-sprayer constantly engaged in damping the Kilmachonna Road.
