    The funding will be used to continue safety works which were carried out at Robeen Crossroads this year. There have been a number of very serious accidents at this junction in recent years.

    Minister Ring says the funding will help to improve safety for motorists at this location.

  • Works at Robeen Crossroads in South Mayo will go to tender shortly and will commence in the next six weeks.

    That’s according to Minister for Rural and Community Development Michael Ring.
