‘A great day for Mitchelstown’ was how Bunscoil na Toirbhirte principal Kayren Hayes, described the appointment of a new traffic warden at the school.

After six years of campaigning for a traffic warden at Bunscoil na Toirbhirte, Cork County Council approved funding for the post in June 2017 and the post has now, eventually, been filled by popular local man, Tony Fitzgerald.

Many people will know Tony from his time working in AIB or more recently as an employee at Mitchelstown Leisure Centre. He is married to Deirdre and has two sons and is the son of Nellie Fitzgerald.
