“There is a bad patch there that has been on the agenda for a while. It’s causing concern for residents,” he said.

Mr. Edmond Kenny, District Engineer, replied.

“Laois County Council will assess this road in the overall context of the development of a future roads programme,” he said.

Cllr Clooney thanked him for the reply adding that he would appreciate it if something could be done.
