That’s according to Galway West Deputy Eamon O’Cuiv who will visit Inis Mor this morning with Connemara Area Cllr Sean O’ Tuairisg to assess repairs needed.

The Fianna Fail Deputy will meet with the local Co-Op to discuss the service centre depot which has been left inaccessable due to an impassable roadway.

Some local roads in mainland Connemara are also impassable with families in Carna and Roundstone left stranded.

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Concerns are being raised over the dangerous state of the roads between Tuam and Ballymoe.

The issue was raised at a meeting of the Ballinasloe municipal district by Councillor Declan Geraghty.

He pointed out there’s a number of stretches in a particularly terrible condition, such as between Dunmore and Williamstown.

Councillor Geraghty said as someone who drives a truck on those roads, “the wheel would nearly be whipped out of your hands” at times.

Councillor Dermot Connolly agreed and said if Councillor Geraghty thought it a bad experience in a truck, he should try it in a basic tractor.

It was acknowledged that some of the poor surface conditions are due to pipe-laying works as part of the project to bring water from Lough Mask to Williamstown.

Councillor Geraghty believes there is an urgent need for works – to hear more, tune in to Galway Bay fm news on the hour
