Bollards, car, damaged in bridge crash

Five bollards and a hanging basket standard were damaged last night when a car apparently went out of control, writes Brian Byrne.

The car, probably a Vauxhall/Opel Vectra C, sustained considerable damage, according to the debris and oil left on the road and path.

The Diary understands the incident happened at around 10pm last evening.

Kildare County Council has been informed.

A member of Kilcullen Community Action said they hoped repairs would be completed before the new Christmas lights are being put up, as the bridge is planned to be a centrepiece for a substantially upgraded display.

A similar accident last year damaged two bollards and a flowers standard.
