Members of the Westport Electoral Area Committee this week expressed their concerns that works that are due to start in Kilbride and Knockbregga on the N59 Westport to Mulranny improvement scheme will have a negative impact on the Great Western Greenway into the summer season next year.

Friday July 1 could be remembered as the day Croagh Patrick broke all records. A group of hardy souls have been in training for the past four months and are now ready to set a few records straight. The group aim to climb up and down the mountain 12 times with three objectives in mind. The first is a Guinness World record attempt for the highest metres ascended and descended in a 24 hour period. The second is to break the national record of nine climbs on the holy mountain in one day, and thirdly to climb more metres than Everest, and go beyond the endurance required climbing the highest mountain in the world, and to achieve it without leaving the country.
