€900,000 funding for road project

Carrick-on-Suir is to benefit from a E900,000 road resurfacing project that is to be carried out on two sections of the N24 road passing through the town this year.

“It’s causing a bit of a problem and we will be operating a zero tolerance policy there,” he warned.
