Calls for additional public transport in Kiltyclogher

A Leitrim councillor says he fears people may not continue living in areas such as Kiltyclogher if public transport is not improved.

In recent times, the north Leitrim rural village gained national and international attention for its success with its online ‘Kilty Live’ campaign to attract residents into the area, which helped to retain its two-teacher primary school.

Fine Gael Councillor Sean McDermott praised the current Bus Eireann Sligo/Enniskillen service but says daily public transport links to places like Kiltyclogher are essential if people are to stay in such rural localities.
