“I’ve worked closely with Longford County Council officials and with Minister of State Damien English to ensure that work would start on the developments at Drumlish and Granard as an urgent priority,” he added.  

“Housing remains one of the Government’s number one priority and ambitious targets have been set for the constituency.

“I will be working to ensure that these targets will be achieved.”
