Crash on Drumshanbo / Ballinamore Road

Blustery weather conditions today have cause a large tree to obstruct the N55 between Carrickedmond church and Carrickboy filling station.

The large tree is currently obstructing the entire road and traffic travelling both directions is at a standstill or moving extremely slowly as cars are directed to drive around the obstruction via a gateway to a local residence.

The obstruction will be dealt with as soon as possible but for now, motorists are advised to take an alternate route where possible.
