Road signs are being stolen off poles every day, a councillor alleged at the monthly meeting of the Claremorris Municipal District this week.

Fine Gael councillor Patsy O'Brien told the meeting: "Signage is being stolen every single day in this county." He later added: "You have to have signage, nobody can do without it. I can bring you out today and show you where there is no signage and we can talk road safety and everything else but yet we don't sort that out, it is an issue a lot of councillors are getting on a daily basis."

Independent councillor Richard Finn agreed with Cllr O'Brien, saying: "We have an issue with signage and pilfering," adding that he had written a number of emails to the council in relation to the issue.
