Fine Gael TD for Cork North West Michael Creed has used the Party’s annual “think in” in Adare in County Limerick to impress upon the Minister for Transport, the importance of including the Macroom bypass project in the forthcoming Government Capital Programme. Commenting on his discussions with Minister Donohoe, Deputy Creed said:
“The finishing touches are now being put on the Government Capital Programme for the next five years and with this in mind I took the opportunity to once again outline the case for the inclusion of the Macroom bypass project in the Programme, to my colleague, the Minister for Transport Pascal Donohoe.
“I cannot think of a single issue I have campaigned more for over the past decade in politics and therefore I wasn’t going to miss this eleventh hour opportunity to again press home the matter.
“While it may not be a case of now or never for the project, in terms of its inclusion in this Capital Programme, I certainly believe it must be a case of now! Following my discussions with Minister Donohoe, I remain hopeful that the bypass is on-track”
