Kilkenny Councillor says it shouldn’t take loss of lives before something is done about dangerous junction

“Lives, accidents & injuries should not be used as a cost benefit analysis” – so says South Kilkenny Councillor, Pat Dunphy.

He was speaking about the Carrigeen junction on the N24 where there have been a number of bad accidents and near misses.

At the moment, plans are advancing to address issues at another junction – at the Tower Bridge on the same road – but councillor Dunphy says this turnoff also needs urgent attention.

He’s told KCLR News though that it seems to be a case of the more horror stories the more chance there is of something being done.
