I’d like to say thanks to Andrew Anderson and his men at Kilkerran cemetery.
During the recent snow and ice people were sliding on the brae by the cemetery entrance.
One of the men, Barry, got a lorry lad of salt and all the men shovelled it onto the road surface.
There was a woman and a child in a BMW who got stuck on the brae and the cemetery workers pushed them to the top.
Perhaps in the future the council should make sure it clears this stretch of road.
People can get along the level bits but when they hit the brae it is harder.
The men sprung into action just when they were needed.
