Concerns over quad bike racing

RESIDENTS in Balcurris and Ard Na Meala fear there will be an accident due to groups of youths riding quad bikes and motorbikes in the area.

The park in Balcurris is a popular spot for quad bikes riders - many of whom are uninsured.

Youngsters are racing each other in the surrounding estates, according to Cllr Noeleen Reilly.

"A lot of communities are suffering from the activities of a small few," she said.

The Sinn Fein councillor said gardai will not chase the culprits as they fear it could lead to an accident.
