Mayo County Council is appealing to landowners, farmers and householders to ensure their roadside hedges and overhanging trees are cut, so that motorists, cyclists and pedestrians can travel safely on our roads.

The hedge-cutting season is now open, from 1st September until the 28th February, and the council is calling for roadside hedges to be cut and maintained.

Tom Gilligan, Director of Services with Mayo County Council, says the roads department has had numerous representations from road users concerning the overgrown state of hedgerows and overhanging trees along some rural roads, and the serious road safety issues that can result.

He's calling on landowners and householders who fail to cut and maintain their roadside hedges to be more pro-active over the coming months to ensure roadside hedges and overhanging trees are maintained properly, as they're obliged to do by law.
