A bridge in Donaghmore, Co Laois needs to be cleaned out according to Cllr Brendan Phelan.
“One eye of the bridge is almost closed up entirely with silt, it needs a small amount of maintenance work to relieve the third eye.
"We don't need any of the €3.1 million Mountmellick got, it is just a small amount of maintenance," Cllr Phelan said.
Cllr Phelan passed a notice of motion at the February Borris-in-Ossory/Mountmellick Municipal District meeting.
Laois County Council said it will inspect the issue and carry out cleaning as required.
