A tree is going to cause a serious accident at Coolagh Cross in Clonaslee, according to Cllr Seamus McDonald.

Last week at the Mountmellick area meeting, he asked that the council remove the tree.

“This is an ash tree, it is nearly past the edge of the road, fifty yards past the cross towards Tullamore. It is breaking wing mirrors off lorries,” he said.

Council engineer Tom O’Carroll said the removal would be done.
