• With extensive works underway by Irish Water in Foxford in the construction of a new sewerage scheme for the area, local Fine Gael cllr Neill Cruise says there is some confusion locally over what bridge in the town will be closed to traffic.

    Cllr Cruise told Midwest News that it is not the main bridge in the town that that links Foxford to Ballina and Pontoon, or the N26 to the N5, that’s closed to traffic, but rather it’s Moybridge, close to the garda station in town that is closed to traffic for the next number of weeks, and diversions are in place.

    A public information meeting on the new sewerage scheme in the town takes place this afternoon in the Foxford Woollen Mills. Irish Water is hosting the event.
