Longford town's Richmond Street to be closed for two days this week

Richmond Street in Longford town will be closed to traffic tomorrow and Wednesday to allow 'emergency works' be carried out at the Longford Arms Hotel

One of Longford town's busiest roads will be closed during business hours for two days this week.

Richmond Street will be closed to traffic from 8:30am to 5:30pm tomorrow (Tuesday) and Wednesday to allow what have been described as "emergency works" to be undertaken at the Longford Arms Hotel.

In a statement, Longford County Council said signed local diversion routes will be in place and in the interest of road safety, motorists are requested to "heed all signs and to follow the detours."

The spokesperson pointed out, "The closure of Richmond Street is to facilitate the Longford Arms Hotel carrying out emergency structural works on the Chimney Breast of the hotel."
