Councillor calls for priority funding for N2 road

An Independent Councillor believes the N2 route from Monaghan Town to Emyvale should be prioritised by Transport Infrastructure Ireland.

That’s according to Councillor Paudge Connolly who says he is concerned that the seven mile stretch of road is yet to receive funding.

Since 2009, Monaghan County Council have identified a very large study area to upgrade the N2 Dublin-Derry Road from Clontibret to the border north of Emyvale village.

Councillor Connolly says it’s a dangerous stretch of road which should be prioritised by the TII (Transport Infrastructure Ireland).
