Work commences on Luke’s Bridge

Works have commenced on Luke’s Bridge in Gortaleck.

The route, which is the main route to the summit of Benbulben, is also surrounded by commonage for sheep farmers.

Upon completion, a 12ft x 12ft cattle grid will be installed to stop sheep from getting on to the road. A gate and turnstile will also be put in place, which will allow safe access for walkers and cyclists.

Speaking to Ocean FM News, Sinn Féin Councillor, Thomas Healy, feels a solution that suits all parties concerned has been found.
