Doherty & McEntee meet North Meath Road Action Group in Leinster House
Fine Gael TDs for Meath East, Regina Doherty and Helen McEntee, this week attended an information session in Leinster House with members of the North Meath Road Action Group. The session provided the group with an opportunity to illustrate to Oireachtas members the issues that exist with roads in north Meath.
Deputies Doherty and McEntee and jointly stated: ‘As always, we continue to work closely with Government Ministers in order to get proper services and solutions in place for Meath East. We have made representations to the Minister for Transport, Leo Varadkar TD, on the issue and he is fully aware of the situation in north Meath.
Deputy McEntee said: ‘It was great to see the amount of people who came down from north Meath in order to illustrate the problems with roads in that part of the county and I’d like to thank them for their participation and for the excellent presentations made.’
“As a recently elected TD, I have made our local roads a priority and I hope that a solution to the situation will be found.”
Deputy Doherty said: ‘Councillors face an annual challenge to locate funds to service the roads throughout the county. As TDs we are fully aware of the problem with roads in north Meath and have a clear plan on how it should be resolved. Having made representations to Minister Varadkar on the issue, I am confident that a satisfactory resolution will be provided in the coming weeks.’
“I was really enthused by the turnout at the briefing event in Leinster House. It shows that people are engaged with and concerned about the issues that affect them in their communities.”
