Leitrim Councillor concerned over lack of speed limit signs

A Leitrim Councillor has raised concerns over the issue of the lack of speed limit signage on the N16 National Primary Road.

Leitrim Councillor Sean McDermott claims the Sligo section of the N16 has more signage than the Leitrim section to indicate the speed limit of 80km.

The Fine Gael councillor says when drivers enter a National Primary Road, they assume the speed limit is 100km.
