The L14105 will be officially renamed in the coming months.

A local road in Monaghan is set to be re-named in memory of the late Brendan Og Ó Dufaigh in the coming months.

The L14105, from Old Cross Square to The Monaghan Harps GAA grounds, will become "Slí Ógie Uí Dhufaigh", or "Ógie Ó Dufaigh Way".

Monaghan MD received a request to rename the local road as the "Brendan Og Ó Dufaigh Road" and this was agreed to by local councillors.

The 19-year-old Monaghan GAA star lost his life in a road traffic collision on the N2 in July of last year, while on his way home from a game.

A letter was issued to all residents on the road and submissions were invited from the public.

Four submissions were received, one of which was a request that the road instead be changed to "Slí Ógie Uí Dhufaigh", or "Ógie Ó Dufaigh Way".

Brian McKenna proposed the name change and said everyone is delighted to see this happen.

Cathy Bennett seconded the move, and said it is a great tribute to the family as they are Irish speakers.

Meanwhile, Seamus Treanor said it is a great way to pay tribute to what Brendan Og Ó Dufaigh did for his club and county.
