Lower Ormond residents protest over local roads

Nenagh councillors faced a protest outside the Civic Offices over the state of the roads in the municipal district council's area.

Around 20 people gathered before the council's January meeting last week to highlight their frustation at the Nenagh to Portumna road being closed for almost six weeks due to flooding at Carrigahorig, as well as the state of minor roads in the area.

The road only reopened last week. However, it is due to be closed again in February as Galway County Council does some work on Portumna bridge.
