Mayo County Council has announced that it is to trial the pedestrianisation of Pearse Street Balllina from this weekend (August 7th)
Pearse Street will close to traffic from Saturday, August 7th from 6:30pm until 8:30am on Monday and every weekend from there on between those hours until September 27.
Welcoming the confirmation of a trial Ballina Municipal District Councillor Mark Duffy, who is Leas Cathaoirleach of the district, stated:
“I believe that Pearse Street lends itself well to pedestrianisation, particularly in the summer months, which can help create a street with an improved shopping experience and a space for music and arts performances. This can create a space for Saturday evening entertainment and family themed events on Sundays. It would be great to see musicians & performers enhance the space especially during these times.”Cllr. Mark Duffy
