Fianna Fáil Deputy for Roscommon-Galway, Eugene Murphy, is set to introduce a Bill seeking to amend the Local Government Act (1991), in a bid to tackle the ongoing uncertainties over the Monksland boundary issue.

The Bill is designed to ensure that the county status of a community shall not be altered without the explicit consent of the majority of its electorate.

“This is an issue which is of the utmost importance and one which is firmly on my radar," Deputy Murphy said. "The Bill will come before the Dáil in the coming weeks and there will be an opportunity for all public representatives and members of the Save Roscommon group to attend the introduction of the Bill in Leinster House, if they so wish.
