A DOONBEG road serving two houses and a farmyard is to be taken over by Clare County Council.

It follows a proposal from Cllr PJ Kelly (FF) asking that the local authority take over the Lios Road at Rhynagonaught, Doonbeg.

Senior executive engineer in the West Clare Municipal District, Alan Kennelly explained that the process involved in declaring a private road public sets out “that the Road Authority must satisfy itself that the road in question is of general public utility and consider the financial implications of declaring a road a public road”.

Steps involved in the process include, process initiation, mandatory public consultation, consideration of received submissions, an engineer’s report, a MD meeting, post consultation and the responsibilities of the Council thereafter.

Kennelly noted that the Lios Rd “was improved recently as part of a LIS. It serves two houses and a farmyard. The process may be initiated as outlined in the Clare County Council policy”.

Speaking at a recent sitting of the West Clare MD, Cllr Kelly outlined that the road was in good condition. “As reward for the people who put their hand in their pocket to subsidise the grant, we should start the process and have it taken over”. His proposal was supported by Cllr Gabriel Keating (FG).
