Cllr Seamus Coyle passed a number of motions recently inviting the Transport Minister to Co Monaghan to personally inspect the road network.

The Transport Minister has confirmed that his department is “engaging” with Monaghan County Council in relation to a meeting about the “atrocious condition” of the county’s roads.

Cllr Seamus Coyle has passed a number of motions recently inviting the Transport Minister to Co Monaghan to personally inspect the road network.

But at a County Council meeting in July, Cllr Coyle noted that the Council "forwarded the motion again, but there is no action from Eamon Ryan".

However, in response to a parliamentary question from local TD Niamh Smyth, asking if he is “willing to meet a delegation from the Council”, Minister Ryan confirmed that the department is “engaging” with the Local Authority regarding a meeting.

In a statement to Northern Sound, Deputy Smyth said “too many lives have been lost on local roads and a concerted effort must be made to carry out the necessary improvements”.
