Two county councillors are to launch a campaign of legal action and road blockades along the route of the new N6 from Ballinasloe to Doughiska.

Ballinasloe based Independent Cllr. Tim Broderick and Loughrea based Fine Gael Cllr. Michael Mogie Maher want the N6 Construction company, who are responsible for the building of this section, to act on the hundreds of complaints from local residents.

Both councillors are making contact with local community groups, GAA clubs and IFA branches in the hope that they will row in behind the campaign.

They have also sought legal advice and have retained the services of Athenry based solicitor, Cormac McCarthy, to act on behalf of this new local movement.

Cormac McCarthy has agreed to offer his services to every person claiming compensation on a no win no fee basis.
