Some roads that were due for works to be carried out on across the county have now been taken of the list

Roads funding allocated for the county of Cavan have decreased by 6% in line with inflation costs.

That's according to Cllr Clifford Kelly who raised the matter at the recent meeting of Cavan Co Council.

The Kingscourt native says that this year's roads budget for the county has fallen way short thanks to the rising cost of materials as a result of inflation.

Cllr Clifford says the situation of getting an extra 6% in this year's budget leaves us down money compared to receiving additional funding.

Some roads that were due for works to be carried out on across the county have now been taken of the list due to the lack of money for the works to be carried out.

Cllr Clifford Kelly made a proposal to make contact with the Taoiseach and Tánaiste to discuss this very important issue for the county and he says he doesn't want to see a return to how bad the roads were in 1980s across Cavan.
