Chapter 5: Environment, Heritage, Landscape and Green Infrastructure

The trees along the Groody Road joining the Towerton area (Garryglass road/R527) to the Castletroy area (Plassey Park Rd/Dublin Rd) have become a main feature for the community and commuters to the area. These tress line either side of the road every 2-3 metres and form continuous line that are an attractive feature of the area. However, they have been cut down in recent years to accommodate bus stops, local businesses, the school site which has significantly decreased their impact. Furthermore, they have become neglected as has the surrounding footpaths and fences. Only have repeated requests have the council repaired and maintained the tress after years of neglect.


We request that these trees become a protected part of the Limerick area so that they can be properly cared for and can no longer be cut down, reducing their numbers.

Main opinion: 

Preserve and protect the trees along the Groody Road
