Bantry native disappointed with the state of the roads

Letters to EditorOn a visit to my home town of Bantry at Christmas, the first in 15 years at that time of year, it was with great disgust that I took the road to Scart from Bantry and found the briers and bushes meeting in the middle of the road.

What is wrong with the people of Bantry? They tell us that the world visits Bantry to see the scenery, but alas the road to the top of the hill is almost blocked.

You spent thousands building a lovely car park with a view over Bantry town and bay and you can’t drive to the beauty spot without destroying you car.

God be with the days of Michael Pat Murphy and Paddy Sheehan, the roads were looked after.

What about the county council nowadays — what are they doing?

What about the county councilors that are looking for your votes. Tell them to sort out the roads before they get a vote.
