Schull Garda Station has been awarded a Road Safety Authority Leading Lights award for 2017. The award was presented to Gardaí from the station by the RSA chairperson Liz O’Donnell at the RSA’s 10th annual ‘Leading Lights in Road Safety’ Awards in Croke Park.

The Mizen is policed by three Gardaí who carry out both policing duties and who also dedicate their time to promoting road safety – Sgt. James O’Donovan, Jonathan McCarthy and Anthony Roche. They visit the schools in the area several times a year to promote road safety, regularly distribute high visibility clothing and promote cycle safety to the large groups of cyclists each weekend in the Mizen; and have given out a large number of 1.5 Keep Your Distance window stickers, RSA Lights and Hi-Vis materials.

Last year they held a fantastic ‘safety at land and at sea’ project promoting safety of which road safety was a big part. All emergency services were involved and Minister Michael Creed opened the event.

Schull Garda Station play a proactive role in the local community educating people on road safety and making the Mizen a better place for the people that live there.

A total of 24 individuals and organisations were honoured for their commitment and dedication to road safety at the tenth annual ‘Leading Lights in Road Safety’ Awards which were presented by RSA Chairperson Liz O’Donnell and RSA Chief Executive Moyagh Murdock in Croke Park today. MC for the day was RTÉ News Correspondent Teresa Mannion, with awards presented in categories including media, education, business, emergency services and public sector.
