A local councillor says Rose Inn Street in Kilkenny City is a challenge as it is not wide enough and pedestrians could get hit by a bus or car “wing mirror”.

At the September meeting of the Municipal District of Kilkenny City, Cllr Malcolm Noonan said: “The challenge on Rose Inn Street is the carriage is not wide enough for vehicles.

“You could get hit by a wing mirror.”

She said: “I saw two buses trying to get by each other and with a lot of difficulty.”
