Family left in limbo for decade due to planned new road

The routes being considered for the proposed Oylegate to Rosslare scheme

Ten years ago when the process first began to build the new Oylegate to Rosslare Harbour road, James Dunne from Green Road, Drinagh, attended the meetings.

At that stage, there were several route options and, by his own admission, James 'didn't take too much notice of it'. That was until a letter arrived through the letterbox informing him that his home was in the chosen route.

After this, the financial crash resulted in the whole project for the new road stalling, but for the decade in between, James and his family were left living in a house that they couldn't sell or carry out major work on. Now the process has started again in earnest and while there are now eight routes back on the table again, two of them again would majorly impact the Dunne family.
