The long awaited signage at the two crossings in Muff village has been assured by the Donegal County Council to be put in place this week. This assurance has been promised to both Bernard Breslin, Chairman of Muff Community Dev. Co Op, and to Sinn Fein Councillor Jack Murray. It is vital that this work is carried out now before a serious accident takes place.
Just last week an adult with two four-year old twin girls had a lucky escape as they were in the act of crossing when a car had stopped but a car coming in the opposite direction seemed to be unaware of the crossing and failed to stop just missing the three people by inches. This is an example of what could happen if the signage is not put in place immediately.
