The team members receiving the award at Croke Park

The RSA Leading Lights Awards show took place at Croke Park on December 13th where the Moyross Youth Academy and other stakeholders won the Education Primary Award.

The project aimed to raise awareness of the dangers and risks associated with the misuse of scrambler bikes and quads in urban areas. During Covid-19, the area had seen an increase in this activity with very limited opportunities to address the issue with the then ongoing restrictions. The idea of a road safety awareness documentary scrambler edition evolved from group discussions with interested parties including Limerick City and County Council, An Garda Síochána, National Ambulance Service, TUS and others. 

The project in May 2021 involved the launch of a road safety campaign in the community with the staging of a road crash involving a scrambler and a car, along with the emergency response. This event was witnessed by 6th class students from Corpus Christi School. It was followed by a discussion on road safety between the students, Advanced Paramedic Keith Mullane, and Sergeant Tony Miniter from Limerick Roads Policing Unit. This was then followed by a launch of the new documentary on the issue, ‘Keeping It On Track’ which was shown locally and is available on Facebook.

The documentary was filmed and directed by Simon McGuire with the voice over by Vera Knowles. It can be viewed again on the link below:
