Keep an eye on your teens and keep safe!!!

Note from  The Priory

We have been advised by a parent, that there is more trouble anticipated this evening following the two incidents which occurred in Johnstown People’s Park and on the open green at Johnstown Wood last night. Please be vigilant allowing your children to play in the area and report any unfamiliar faces to the Gardaí. If you have teens, question them on where they’re going and with who. Drop them to friends’ houses if possible and remain in contact with them and the parents of their friends. No-one wants to get a call from the emergency services tonight about their child. Remember The Priory is now part of Neighbourhood Watch, so time to put it into action. Stay safe and take pics if necessary.

Slow Down, Watch the kids!!!

Slow down

Dear Drivers,

Can I ask you to be mindful of your speed and be extra vigilant of young children that might run out from behind parked cars, especially with the good weather and summer holidays around the corner and more children out playing. So please Slow down, stay vigilant & keep our children safe!
