Speaking in his role as Chair of Slieve Gullion DEA, Ó Muirí explained how assurances were given to local councillors that representatives from Transport NI would attend DEA meetings when required. “This is a poor start to the new DEA forum,” he said. “From its inception, local councillors were assured that agencies would attend the monthly meetings if and when required. The first time we have requested an audience with Transport NI they have let us down. “The current situation with our roads across South Armagh is dire, with action needed immediately. It is extremely disappointing that there is no-one available to come out and hear our concerns about the state of our roads.” Councillor Ó Muirí stated the need for agreement between Council and the agencies in order to provide the best public services and infrastructure for the people of South Armagh. He added, “I will continue, as Chair of Slieve Gullion DEA, to invite all necessary parties to our DEA forum, in order to bring about improvement. I have contacted Transport NI and will be reporting back to the council about this disappointing snub.”
