The following is a message from An Garda Siochana:
Sunday 12th Sept. ’10
The main street will be closed to traffic for the duration of the parade. This will be for approx. 1 hour from the start of the parade.
Alternative routes will be via Alter and Mullantyboyle.
Monday 13th of Sept. ’10
No traffic through the town from 8am until 9pm. A one-way system will be in operation during this time.
Traffic approaching town from Ardara direction will be diverted at Connaghans Hardware Store via Mullantyboyle.
Traffic approaching from Dungloe direction will be allowed into town as far as the Grotto and then diverted out Station Road.
Traffic from the Fintown direction will be diverted via Alter.
Traffic from the Glen Road will be directed out the Mill Road.
There will be No Parking allowed on the Alter and Mullantyboyle roads.
We would ask all locals to assist us by using this one way system the same as a large roundabout and NOT to attempt to go against the flow of traffic.
We would also ask all businesses to avoid having deliveries made on the 13th, as the plan is to keep HGV traffic to a minimum on the Fair day. Please advise all HGV users to avoid Glenties on the 13th of Sept.
While we appreciate that this is an inconvenience for locals, your cooperation with the flow of traffic will greatly assist us in keeping the main street free of traffic for the Fair day and thank you for your cooperation.
John Mc Groary, Sergeant.
An Garda Siochana
