Fine Gael councillors John Browne (pictured) and Peggy Nolan have raised questions over the fluoridation of local water supplies.

A speed survey is to be carried out close to a newly remodelled national school on the outskirts of Longford town.

Longford County Council have agreed to the measure at Stonepark National School after an appeal made by local Cllr John Browne.

Speaking at a monthly municipal district meeting last week, Cllr Browne said there was a need to erect flashing speed reduction signs in light of the increased traffic flow in the area.

Engineer Eamon Bennett said the council would conduct a survey to determine the suitability for the planned measure.
