Public meeting tonight to highlight safety issues on N4 between Carrick and Boyle

A public meeting will take place tonight to campaign for safety measures on the N4 between Carrick on Shannon and Boyle.

Concerns are being renewed over the dangers at the junctions to Croghan and to Coothall, there’s no feeder lane and cars often travel at speed on the wide road.

There have been a number of accidents in the area, the most recent just 10 days ago when two cars collided – no-one was seriously injured.


The area has been signalled out by Roscommon County Council to Transport Infrastructure Ireland as a priority,

A campaign was initiated in 2013, when over 400 people signed a petition calling for action, but no measures materialsied.

There’s hopes now to renew that campaign with the meeting tonight taking place in the Ardcarne Park, beginning at 9pm.

Deputy Eugene Murphy and his colleague Eamon Scanlon address the Transport Minister on the issue in the Dail this week
