Over €250,000 in funding for Leitrim roads
A further €250,000 to repair local roads in Leitrim under the Local Improvement Scheme (LIS) has been announced.
Eleven roads to be improved around the county have been determined by Leitrim County Council based on the financial allocation by the Department of Rural and Community Development.
Two roads in Kinlough will receive the most amount of funding, Stracummer, Kinlough will get €44,014 and Aughadunvane, Kinlough will have repairs worth €48,904.
Senator Frank Feighan welcomed the news and said, “My colleague Minister Michael Ring has confirmed this allocation as part of an additional €10m nationally for the LIS this year.
