Farmers in Co Cork have called on Cork County Council to re-consider its decision not to distribute grit to local communities, so that they can clear roads which the Council is not treating.

Road gritting - Health & Safety course is required in Cork to grit 2 of 2 Grit - Cork farmers want it distributed to local communities Play Stop Six One News: Farmers object to road gritting restrictions
Farmers in Cork have called on Cork County Council to re-consider its decision not to distribute grit to local communities, so that they can clear roads which the Council is not treating.

Cork County Council has said that it cannot supply grit to community groups because they have not been given the appropriate health and safety training to spread the grit safely.

A similar system is operating across the county bounds in Kerry without problems.

Grit has been given to local farmers to treat the minor roads which the council's gritting trucks simply cannot reach.

Kerry County Council has been operating 50 grit sites across Kerry this week and has no fears about health and safety there.

But at Coppeen in west Cork, ice-bound farmers are furious because Cork County Council is refusing to supply them with grit to treat their roads on health and safety grounds.

Cork County Council says it is trying to organise half-day health and safety courses for communities who want to clear their own roads.

The council cannot say when these courses will be in place but, there will be no free grit for these groups.

Most definitely we have become a ruined state. How are the volunteers to get to the course if it is organised in this weather? Cork CO CO will have to grit the roads so the volunteers can get to the class! Farmers and householders were griting roads and paths for generations before Health & Safety was heard of. What a pity 'common sense' is not a saleable commodity.

I was wondering what anybody would need classes for Gritting? It just came up on the Radio there.
Meath Farmers phoned the coco to send a Gritter out to their area and were told that they were not a designated area,
so the bloke says fair enough, can we have some Grit and we'll do it ourselves then.
They were told that if they laid the Grit and there was an accident in the areas they laid it, they would be liable.

Spend a couple of days here and you would soon find out that ANYTHING that shower introduced here by way of taxes is all a waste of time. Petrol at 2:70 dollars a GALLON. Plastic bags handed out in their millions at Supermarkets and we (the Royal 'we' often used here on this Site when talking about the Celtic Tiger) fell for it.
Remeber it started off as Global Warming, when this was disproved they changed it to Climate change so that covers EVERYTHING.
I was told ( by an Ex FF Councillor) when they decided to pull the plug on the present Government they said they would stay to see the budget through IF they got the carbon tax increased. How they are holding at 3% in the ratings is beyond me :roll:
