FRANCIS STREET IS STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS
I know that I and others have complained about how long it has taken to complete the work on Francis Street but until today I had been unaware that Francis Street has been preserved as a residential area, despite a 1968 traffic study recommending that it be levelled to make way for a route to Drogheda port.
According to the local weather forecast: We’re really at the start of potentially a long cold spell because really this cold weather is set to last all the way through next week. Met Éireann expects sharp frost and icy stretches to set in tonight as temperatures dip to -4C in places.
A Status Yellow freezing fog warning applies for all counties in the Republic of Ireland until midday tomorrow, causing potentially hazardous driving conditions.
