Sligo County Coun­cil will en­deav­our to iden­tify dan­ger­ous trees along road­sides that may need to be cut down. That was the re­sponse of Di­rec­tor of In­fra­struc­ture, En­vi­ron­ment and Fire Ser­vices Tom Kil­feather to Cllr Mar­garet Gorm­ley’s mo­tion to carry out a sur­vey of dan­ger­ous trees and re­quest that landown­ers cut them down if re­quired.

The mo­tion was widely sup­ported by other mem­bers.
