Councillors pledge support for families

Cllr. Tony Waldron (Fianna Fail), top right, told the Roscommon People that he has raised the issue of safety at Slieve level crossing on a number of occasions. He believes that action must be taken and has called on Iarnrod Eireann to make contact with the Conlon families and put their minds’ at ease by making a firm commitment to address their concerns.    Cllr. Martin Connaughton, bottom  right, added his words of concern when he spoke to the Roscommon People. He says that he supports the families in their campaign to have this matter dealt with.    ‘It is a dangerous crossing and a solution should be found. I support those families. I had the Area Engineer out there (to view it) and it certainly is dangerous in my opinion. We can win these battles. Iarnrod Eireann tried to block a road in Donamon before (and put in a new one) which we felt was unacceptable because it was cutting people off
