Senator Sharon Keogan has come up with a radical solution to try and stop teens from swimming in a quarry on Station Road in Duleek.
Earlier this week Christopher Rennicks from Meath River Rescue warned about the dangers associated with swimming in certain parts of the River Boyne, but we shouldn’t overlook the dangers inherent in swimming in other areas as well.
And the Senator has come up with what Meath Live thinks is a sensible suggestion if all the possible side effects can be sorted out.
She posted on her Facebook page, with the emphasis on teens being hers, not ours, ‘It has come to my attention the TEENS are swimming in the quarry on the Station Road. I’ve spoken to the owner and asked him to put a permanent dye into the water to deter them.
‘Fences are up, but the TEENS keep breaking in. Now I’m warning all you parents, these quarries are dangerous.
