Leitrim County Council is due to make a funding application later this week.

Roscommon County Council is being criticised for their failure to progress a pedestrian walkway along the bridge over the Shannon at Rooskey.

Speaking during this months meeting of the Carrick On Shannon Municipal District, Leitrim councillors expressed their displeasure with their neighbouring local authority.

The joint project between the two local authorities was being led by Roscommon County Council, who have since confirmed they have now dropped the issue.

Criticising the delays now caused to the projects, local councillors including Sean McGowan, Des Guckian and Thomas Mulligan signalled their support for Leitrim Coco taking the reins.

The council will apply for funding for the project under the Active Travel scheme later this week to get the project as far as planning and design.

Leitrim Councillor Sean McGowan says the current bridge is extremely dangerous for pedestrians and is now hoping movement can begin on the project.
