He brought the issue up at this month's meeting of Bagenalstown Municipal District and asked that the road be put down on next year's list for works. 

Cllr Foley said the problem isn't potholes; it's grass in the middle of the road.

"There should be no grass on roads now," he added. 

Area engineer, Jerry Crowley, said he would look into the matter.
