With regard to the fatal road accident that occurred on Wed night resulting in the road between Castlebar and Westport being closed at Islandeady until 12 midday yesterday, and with all due respect to the family of the victim, I am compelled to ask some questions:
1. Was it absolutely necessary to close the road for that period of time?
Finally, I was going to address these questions directly in a letter to the local Chief Superintendent, but, I was dubious whether A. The Garda would even deem it warranting a response from them or a justification of their handling of the situation and B. As to what the actual response might be, whether it might actually result in a focusing of Garda resources on me personally as oppossed to the issue.
For similar reasons I felt it was equally pointless to address my concerns on the issue to any of the County Councillors. Therefore I am posting it here in the hope of some public debate and who knows it may even elicit a response from the Garda or Councillors via this or other media (that might hopefully opt to run with this issue too).
