"The majority of that traffic is not wanted in the town," Cllr Arthur McDonald said as he reiterated his call for the Bagenalstown by-pass.
Cllr McDonald was speaking at a recent meeting of Bagenalstown Municipal District when he made the remark that a lot of traffic through Bagenalstown is not wanted.
