• €24,000 has been provided for upgrading a carpark in Ballintubber adjacent to the community centre and new playground.

    Fine Gael Councillor Donna Sheridan confirmed today that the money would be provided for the carpark as part of a wider scheme of works in the west Mayo village.

    It follows the allocation of €2,677,352 for the Ballintubber Abbey Cultural and Visitor Centre and €74,984 which was allocated to the development of the community playground.

    Councillor Sheridan  says she will make the project a priority with Mayo County Council in the New Year.

  • Work is underway on a new 54 space car park, located at Lord Edward street in Ballymote.

    According to local councillor Dara Mulvey, the new car park located in the town centre will help businesses in the town and relieve traffic congestion on the main streets and will be an asset to the entire community. It is also planned to locate a electric vehicle charging point on site.

    The councillor told Midwest News that he had been working on the development for some time and is delighted to see that work is now taking place on the development.
