Vol. 32 No. 10

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Construction of New Road in Co. Longford.

asked the Minister for Lands and Fisheries whether his Department has received applications from the tenants of the townlands of Meentashesk, Loughnalocraman, Largynacarra, and Meenabul, in the Ardara district, County Donegal, to have a new road made to give them access to the public road at Leckconnell from their mountain holdings, and what steps the Minister proposes to take to have such a road constructed.

The Land Commission had under consideration, as a result of representations made to them on behalf of certain residents in the townlands mentioned, the construction of a road between Leckconnell and Meentashesk, and have decided that the project is not one which would justify the heavy expenditure which would be involved in the undertaking owing to the hilly nature of the locality. Even if the Land Commission was prepared to construct the road, some of the persons over whose land it would run are not willing to give the necessary land for the site.
