The public protest at Breaffy this Sunday, unanimously approved by Castlebar councillors earlier this week, is going ahead, according to the Cathaoirleach of Castlebar Municipal District councillor Michael Kilcoyne.
Earlier today a member of the Breaffy Road Safety Group, a community group set up to insist that the speed limit through Breaffy village be reduced to 60 km per hour, told Midwest News that they had not organised Sunday’s protest, proposed by councillors.
A public meeting is taking place this evening in Breaffy to look at the options that Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) is offering the community in terms of its long campaign to have the speed limit reduced.
This evening’s meeting, being organised by the Breaffy Road Safety Group, takes place at 8pm in the hall of St John’s School.
John Fahy a member of the group told Midwest News that tonight’s community meeting will outline what’s on offer from the TII and from there they will decide what , if any action they may now take.
