West Cavan Councillor, John Paul Feeley has confirmed that an allocation of €65,000 has been made by Cavan County Council to complete works on the Thornhill Road (L1000) in 2012.

“The much needed work will address the significant deterioration in the condition in this road in the past two years and bring it up to an acceptable standard for residents and the local community who use this road,” he said.

Located just outside Blacklion and close to the N16 part of the road runs the course of the old Sligo to Dublin Coach Road of the 1700’s and is therefore of historic significance.

Cllr Feeley confirmed that the work involved would include patching and strengthening and surface dressing of the entire route.
