Road accident prompts action on Laois road near Kildare

Roadworks in a number of areas in Donegal will cause disruptions for motorists

An open drain needs to be covered to prevent another accident on a Laois road near the Kildare board.

She called on the council to pipe and cover the open drain in Ballintubbert to make the road safe.
