Laois County Council has said that it will liaise with the Transport Infrastructure Ireland to get a sign for County Laois at the Laois/Offaly border.

Cllr Seamus McDonald tabled a notice of motion at a recent council meeting asking Laois County Council to erect a sign at Moneyquid, Killeigh.

Cllr McDonald said ‘the sooner the better’ the sign is put up.

“The request came from Kilcavan GAA who want to show where the boundary starts,” he said.

In an official reply, Senior Executive Engineer at Laois County Council, Mr Paul McLoughlin, said "Laois County Council will liaise with TII regarding the request for the provision of signage at this location".

Kilcavan has a buzzing and expanding GAA community which plays a big role in the local community and in Laois GAA overall. Kilcavan lies on the Laois side of the border close to Mountmellick while nearby areas like Killeigh and Geashil lie on the Offaly side.

No further timeline or confirmation was given for the sign to be erected at Moneyquid.
