At the September Operations Meeting Councillor Rob O’Donoghue warmly welcomed the update on the over €350k in funding to be spent on road infrastructure in the current calendar year in Lusk. He commented, ‘In a year that has been challenging for the delivery of projects within the Programme of Works due to covid-19 restrictions, I am happy that the works that have been included in the Programme are being moved on and some of which have been delivered.
