Councillors from Athlone Municipal District are hoping that the executive and Gardaí can work together to solve issues surrounding late night noise pollution caused by ‘boy racers’.
Speaking to the Advertiser, Cllr Kevin ‘Boxer’ Moran said that the problem was county-wide, and that in Athlone specifically boy racers were currently congregating in Coosan Point.
“Every time we cut them off from somewhere in town they reappear somewhere else,” explained Cllr Moran, who added that although strategies to block them from areas such as the N6 centre, Golden Island, and Arcadia had worked to some extent, they simply moved to a new meeting point.
