We are looking forward to welcoming more children this year and for the camps to continue to play such a key role in the summer of budding sports stars.” she said.GAA Cúl Camps co-ordinator Charlie Harrison added “It’s time to make Summer plans! Keeping in line with Government guidelines we are thankfully in a position to deliver the camps during the months of July and August 2021 to children living in all 32 counties.“Naturally, after the year we’ve all had to endure, the idea of finally getting out of the house, being active and seeing other children sounds hugely appealing. We are mindful of the reality that Covid 19 will still be with us however, and we will be very much guided by the government and relevant authorities to ensure all reasonable safety measures and protocols are adhered to in the rollout of our camps.GAA President Larry McCarthy said “The success of our Kellogg’s Cúl Camps in 2020 was one of the GAA highlights in what was a difficult year for everyone. The focus and outlet that it gave to 70,000 of our young players in a safe environment provided a huge boost to them and their families and I am confident the camps can have a similarly positive impact this summer.“The reach and success of the camps is not limited to Ireland only; their growing popularity across our international network is a great source of pride and seeing the distinctive playing gear, not just across the island but in pockets around the globe, is fantastic.“A special word of thanks to Kellogg for a decade of supporting this vital project. It is without doubt one of the best and most and successful summer initiatives for children with Gaelic games and fun at the heart of it all.”For more information on the Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps visit www.gaa.ie/kelloggsculcamps Twitter Email RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement LimerickNewsKellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps return for Summer 2021By Meghann Scully – April 27, 2021 213 center_img Linkedin TAGSGAAKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick Post Previous articleLimerick Post Show | Martyn CosgraveNext article€339,000 of Suspected Drugs Seized on April 26, 2021 in Limerick City – Three Men Arrested Meghann Scully WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Facebook Print Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener WhatsApplast_img read more

Blue Ridge Parkway Begins Pavement Preservation Work in Virginia

first_imgAs with any road project, motorists and park users must exercise caution. In the interest of visitor safety, park visitors are asked to: Anticipate loose gravel on the road surface during pavement curing times. Bicyclists and motorcyclists are asked to exercise extreme caution as loose gravel on top of the paved surface, during the required curing time, could result in loss of control. On-site message boards will recommend alternate routes. Work will take place on the following sections of Parkway, and includes the paved road-side pullouts: Project vendors will work in short sections and repeat the resurfacing process as they move from section to section of the full project. The steps in this process include prepping the surface, applying a chip seal surface of liquid asphalt and stone chips, allowing the surface to properly cure, vacuuming the work area to minimize loose gravel, applying a fog seal on top of the chip seal surface, and finishing by painting new road marking lines. The process will then repeat on the next section of the project. Work will continue to take place in areas that have been closed to motor vehicles in an attempt to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Pedestrians and cyclists in these areas should expect construction vehicles and activity while recreating and use extreme caution. The Blue Ridge Parkway inventory of paved roads includes bridges, tunnels, parking areas, spur roads, service roads, campground and picnic area roads, and the 469-mile Parkway motor route itself. Given the large inventory of paved surfaces along the Parkway, and in order to effectively invest available funding, the pavement preservation strategy focuses on keeping the good sections good and returning fair sections to good condition. Check the Parkway’s Real Time Road Map for regularly updated work zone information. Expect delays while work takes place Monday through Friday. Lane closures will be managed with flagging operations and a pilot car to lead traffic through work zones.Observe reduced speed limits in work zones, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; to maintain safe operations and allow for proper curing of pavement.center_img www.nps.gov/blri Parkway Visitors Can Expect One-Lane Closures in Affected Areas When circumstances prevent bicyclists from keeping up with traffic, dismount and move off of the road to let the on-coming traffic pass when traveling through a single lane closure. Pavement preservation is a regular road maintenance strategy in national parks. Studies find that for each dollar spent on pavement preservation between $6 and $10 in future pavement rehabilitation costs are saved. Funding for road maintenance in national parks, including the Parkway, comes in large part from the Highway Trust Fund, which is derived from a federal gas tax managed by the Federal Highway Administration. (VA) – The National Park Service announced today that over 80 miles of the historic motor route in three primary areas will be resurfaced as part of a pavement preservation program on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Prep work has begun in all areas and resurfacing is expected to start in mid-May and continue through November of 2020, with no work scheduled during October. Work locations, within scheduled project areas, will change weekly, and visitors in active work zone areas should expect single lane closures and delays. The National Park Service appreciates the public’s patience and cooperation during this project.
