Jake's Law Is Set To Become A Reality

A new 30km/h speed limit is to be introduced in residential areas across Cork county

The by law is being introduced in residential areas across Cork county after a heartbroken mother began a campaign to bring about the change. 

Roseanne Brennan set up the campaign "Jake's Legacy" after her 6-year-old son was killed five years ago while playing outside their home and her journey to see Jake's Law enacted led her to staging a three day vigil outside the Dail to raise awareness and call for action 

The new by law was passed at Cork County Council's meeting this week however some councillors are also requesting signage and speed bumps to support the measure 

Speaking to RedFM News Roseann Brennan says she's very proud of her little boy's legacy
