Overgrown evergreen trees have made it ‘impossible’ to walk on a Stradbally path according to a local councillor.

Cllr Paschal McEvoy raised the issue at the recent Portarlington Graiguecullen Municipal District meeting.

He said the leylandii trees are growing out from a house along the N80 down from the cemetery. He said he has made efforts to have the issue addressed.

Mr McVeigh said he would follow the matter up.
