asked the Minister for the Environment if he will make funds available to Monaghan County Council for traffic route lighting in the towns and villages along the N.2 road system.

Monaghan County Council applied recently for grants from my Department for the provision of traffic route lighting in Monaghan, Castleblayney and Carrickmacross which are on the National Primary Route N.2. Detailed designs of the schemes have been requested from the council and on receipt of these plans the council's application will be considered further.
