Road works have begun on the L2101 from Collooney to Coolaney

Much needed works have begun on the L2101 road from Collooney to Coolaney.

A local campaign was set up two years ago to try and get funding to fix a number of issues including bad bends.

There have been a number of accidents through the years and locals are happy that work has now begun.

Sligo Sinn Fein Councillor Thomas Healy has welcomed the news but hopes that peoples speed won’t increase due to the better conditions.
