Why did Enda Kenny "our Mayo Taoiseach" not continue the motorway from Gort to Tuam on into Mayo at the very least? It is only a distance of 14km, asked the First Independent group this week.
The group, which is running two candidates in the General Election next Friday, said in a joint statement from both of their candidates, Peter Jordan and George O'Malley: "First Independent Mayo policy is to push for it to be continued to Claremorris and on to Sligo town. Mayo needs real infrastructure if we are to get real jobs. We are also pushing for the Western Rail Corridor; and a Knock Free Zone around the airport. Such a zone will take in Charlestown, Swinford, Kiltimagh, Knock, and Kilkelly and will result in 8,000 jobs."
