There are potholes on some roads in north Mayo that could have their own eircode they are so big, according to Keenagh native Brendan Lavelle.

Brendan was part of a campaigning group to enhance local and regional roads in Mayo, set up back in 2015.

However, he says once a quarter of billion euro was allocated to build a dual carriageway from Westport to Turlough, it became obvious that there would be a serious impact on the amount of government funding that would be allocated to Mayo’s local and regional roads for at least a decade.

He says that is now obvious, and argues that local Fianna Fail and Fine Gael councillors condemning the lack of funding available for our local and regional roads in the last number of days for 2023 should remember that they are part of the system.
