    If he doesn't do something soon in his own constituency soon there is a very real chance that he will not be elected to the next Dail in Mayo. No Taoiseach or Minister have done less for there own constituency.

    Maybe he's has bigger things on his mind like not letting the country sink into bankruptcy?

    I agree and would suggest we are still in bankruptcy. Just saying he will not get re-elected if he continues to neglect some of the local issues that he was elected locally to address. Probably off topic at this point.....so i'll leave it at that.

    The N5/N26/N58 is also proceeding with route selection and now down to two preferred routes, see below. Can't see this part starting anytime soon unless coke or Hollister threaten to pull out due to the state of the road.

    Just to be clear, are they going to upgrade Foxford-Bohola and Foxford-Swinford or just one?

    There will be a dual carriage way from Turlough to Bohola, bypassing Ballyvary. This will link onto the Dual Carriageway from Westport.

    A separate dual road will be built from Mount Falcon outside Ballina bypassing Foxford and linking onto the dual carriageway on the Castlebar side of Ballyvary.

    Separately the N26 from Swinford to Ballina will have an inline upgrade, with a bypass of Swinford and Foxford included.

    So basically the Ballina - Bohola route is been scrapped as it does not suit those travelling to Dublin or those going to Castlebar/Westport. Instead there will be two separate routes.

    Would be handy to extend N26 from Swinford to the N17.

    Was kind of thinking that too - it seems obvious given the very short distance involved.

    Primary, possibly, but it doesn't hold a candle to the N56s wonderful sightlines and vertical alignment

    Go further down between Dromore west and the Junction for Enniscrone and its like cobblestone. Soon as you cross the Mayo border its smooth again.
