West Mayo Councillors

  • €28,000 was signed off on at yesterday’s West Mayo Municipal District meeting for the completion of the Newport Playground.

    Funding was allocated by Cllr. Brendan Mulroy, Cllr. Teresa McGuire, Cllr. Christy Hyland and Cllr. Michael Holmes to get the playground over the line.

    Cllr. Mulroy says a lot of work has gone in to secure this project for Newport and says it’s great to see people working together.

  • West Mayo Councillors have agreed to write to the Transport Minister Shane Ross to try and bring in a law to penalise people who fail to wear hi-visibility clothing while out walking.

    Fianna Fail Councillor Brendan Mulroy asked the SPC to get legal advice and see if a by-law could be brought in within Mayo County Council but that can’t be done.

    As a result of this Cllr Mulroy says the only solution is now to meet with Minister Ross to address this issue.

    Cllr Mulroy says if we can save one life and family from going to a graveyard it will be a good day’s work.
