Galway Bay fm newsroom – A section of the N59 from Cliften to Leenaune has been recorded as the most dangerous stretch of road nationwide.

Gamma Location Intelligence has released an analysis of the most treacherous road segments in Ireland.

The research shows the roads with the highest collision rates are clustered in Galway, Wexford and Longford.

This is determined by the number of road accidents per 100 million vehicle kilometres.

The most dangerous stretch of road was found to be located just east of Kylemore Lough, from Clifden to near Leenane along the N59.

Galway was also the county that appeared most frequently in the top 20 list with eight of the most dangerous road segments.

The second is between Abbey Square Roundabout and Seamus Rafter Bridge in Enniscorthy.

The third most dangerous stretch is at the Killashee Street, Ballymahon Street and New Street junction in Longford town.

Gamma’s Perilfinder platform has an in-built Road Accident Model which collates data from the Road Safety Authority, Transport Infrastructure Ireland and the Central Statistics Office.

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Picketing by beef farmers has ended across the country, with one of the last of the protests coming to an end last night at Liffey Meats in Ballinasloe.

It comes as last week Liffey Meats issued a statement stating the group had over 500 employees anxiously waiting to return to work, and many of its 10,000 farmer suppliers who wanted to sell cattle.

The last of the protests by farmers came to an end last night at plants in Ballyjamesduff in County Cavan and Ballinasloe in County Galway.

It’s after agreement was reached between Meat Industry Ireland and farming organisations over a week ago.

In a statement, the Independent Farmers of Ireland group says it seems last Sunday’s proposal is on the point of being ratified and hopefully this will be the beginning of a new era for the Irish Beef Industry.

It says although there are still many problems that face the sector it feels it can face them from a different position than the picket lines.

It says the newly proposed Taskforce will have the power to oversee all this and the implementation of the proposed solutions are crucial.
