Now firmly in the Healy Rae camp, former Fianna Fáil Mayor of Listowel Cllr. Pat Loughnane was a tireless campaigner for better road and street surface conditions for his native town and he now has the ear of Deputy Healy Rae – who has vowed to get stuck into the task of improving surface issues in Listowel and North Kerry in general.
“William Street is in shocking condition. During the campaign I spent a lot of time in Listowel and it was one of the main topics, it is in a desperate state and funding will have to be approved as a matter of urgency to carry out the necessary work. The roads in North Kerry in general are actually in a disgraceful and deplorable condition,” he said.
“This is a job of work that I will get really stuck into – to try and improve the situation for the people there.
“People pay enough in tax and every other type of tax and the least they should have is proper surfaces on their roads,” said Deputy (Michael) Healy Rae.
