Traffic calming measures in Corcaghan, Co Monaghan, are set to be completed by the beginning of the next academic school year.
St Michael's National School recently received €50,000 in CLÁR Funding for the road safety measures.
This will include the provision of a footpath from the school to the church, as well as flashing beacons to warn motorists of the school.
To the north and south of Corcaghan, the works will include driver feedback signs to warn motorists of the speed limit.
A coloured road surface will also highlight the entrance to the village and traffic islands will be placed along the road edge to slow down traffic.
Cathaoirleach of the Ballybay-Clones MD, Richard Truell, says speed has been a "real issue in the village for a long time" and added that the works will "be a win for everybody":
