A councillor has asked when the Royal Oak Road - which has 7,000 vehicles on it daily - will be "properly reinstated". 

Cllr Denis Foley was speaking at this month's meeting of the Bagenalstown Municipal District and he said it is in "poor condition". 

Area engineer, Jerry Crowley, said there was funding set aside from the junction at the shop (Doyle's Royal Oak Stores) to the bridge however Cllr Foley asked for this to be diverted on to another part of the road which needs resurfacing works more.  

He said: "From the bridge up, by St Lazerians up, is the worst part of it. It would be better to do that surface."

Mr Crowley said the Council could move the funding and do the section Cllr Foley is requesting.
