The urgent need to reduce the speed limit at Breaffy village outside Castlebar will be highlighted at a meeting later this week of the Castlebar Municipal District of Mayo County Council.

Cathaoirleach Michael Kilcoyne is to raise the matter on Thursday, following another collision at Breaffy which took place on Saturday night.

A Norwegian woman suffered serious head injuries after being struck by a car near the entrance to Breaffy House Hotel, while her partner sustained minor injuries.

Before this collision occurred, Councillor Kilcoyne had requested that the matter be included on the agenda for this week's council meeting, and says councillors are prepared to lead the local community in whatever action they decide to take to ensure the speed limit is reduced from 100 km/h to 60.
