While Senator Murphy says the work is needed he is also renewing his call for speed warning signs to be installed on the Strokestown side of the turn.

"In recent days, the TII have a contractor on the road there, there's been quite a lot of work done with the surface again;. I'm confident what has been done will make this very safe for motorists, I hope it'll work out. I would still continue to fight for a set of modern warning lights on the Strokestown side of the Turn of Farn where passing traffic still tends to come in very quickly to that bend".
