A busy road between Portlaoise and Mountmellick remains fully closed to traffic this week, with the closure to last into next week.

Laois County Council is carrying out road drainage works on the The L-2120 Acragar road in Mountmellick past the GAA club.

The road leads to the Ridge road and on to Portlaoise, popular with locals avoiding the N80. The works include resurfacing, and a reduction of the height of a crest where the road turns a corner, past the GAA pitch.
