Letters to the Editor
Arising out of your recent interesting articles on the awful condition of our Co. Galway Roads, it is to be hoped that Mr. Perry will not certify for payment of Roads from the town of Kinvara without first coming to inspect them or else to send his deputy.
The state of these roads is indeed very bad. I don’t wish to name any road in particular as being worse than another, if I tried to I could hardly, as they are one and all as bad as each other.
I often travel these roads and therefore have reason to know the way in which they have been kept. Hoping you will publish these few lines and oblige.
