Army opens Carn-Quigley’s Point road but Mountain Road remains closed

Donegal County Council is continuing the work to repair Inishowen’s flood-damaged roads this week, with more than 425 faults now identified.

The full cost of the repair bill is not yet known but DCC director of services John McLaughlin estimates that “several million euro” at least will be required.

The council hopes to have the main R238 road between Moville and Muff fully repaired by the weekend.

A large section of the road at Three Trees, Quigley’s Point was destroyed when a local river flooded in the heavy rains two weeks ago, with only single-lane access to motorists since then.

However the Inishowen Independent understands that the council could be in a position to reopen the road to two lanes of traffic in the coming days.
