The main Cavan to Athlone road is closed this week. The N55 is closed between Carrickboy and Ballymahon to allow for major works on the route.

Traffic travelling from Cavan to Athlone will be diverted in Edgeworthstown on the N4 to Longford and from there to Ballymahon where motorists will rejoin the N55.

Meanwhile, the main N3 will be closed overnight this week between New Inns and Virginia. Resurfacing works will see the road closed between 8pm and 6.30am from tonight until May 10th.

However, the road will be open all of next weekend. Traffic will be diverted via Ballyjamesduff.
