Following last night’s winds there may be some debris on roads so take care on all routes.  We’ve been informed of the following:

  • 7:50am: Tree down on the road between Callan & Kilmoganny, about a mile from Rogers Town Cross heading for Callan. It’s blocking one side of the road & partially the other side too. Gardai have been notified.
