An Independent Councillor has voiced his frustration at the state of the footpath in the Market Lane area of Westport.
Christy Hyland says this has been an issue going back for at least ten years.
It came to light again recently when a person fell in the Market Lane area and sustained injury.
Cllr. Hyland says that there is an accident on that lane way once every two or three weeks and someone has to take full responsibility to carry out repairs.
It emerged at a recent meeting of the West Mayo Municipal District that the laneway is owned by Nama and Council management say upgrade works in that area would be a very substantial investment.
