Road Safety Authority

The TYs and 5th years attended  a road safety display  in Sligo Sports Complex, where front line agents outlined the sad facts related to young lives lost in road accidents every year through speeding and dangerous or reckless  driving. It was a very graphic illustration of this sad fact and gave us all a lot of food for thought.
