New signage for the Margaret Skinnider roundabout in Monaghan Town has been delayed.

Sinn Féin's Sean Conlon recently enquired about when signage marking the name of the roundabout would be erected.

The roundabout is named after Margaret Skinnider, who came to Dublin from Scotland at the age of 23 to take part in the 1916 Easter Rising.

Born in 1892 near Glasgow, her father was from Tydavnet and she spent several summer holidays there as a child.

Sean Conlon was previously informed that the signage would be erected by the 19th of February.

However, at this week's Monaghan MD meeting where he once again raised the issue, he was told that the council would be "following up with the contractor".

The upgrade works to the roundabout have been criticised by some, with Independent councillor Hugh McElvaney calling the new design "crazy".
