Mary Bohan – A Current Affair: Episode 202
After a coronavirus enforced hiatus, Leitrim Daily is back. To celebrate this Leitrim’s first citizen, Cllr Mary Bohan, Cathaoirleach of Leitrim County Council, joins Breifne Earley to discuss the impact of the virus on the locality.
They discuss the impact the spread of Covid 19 has had on the economic and personal health of the county as well as the steps being taken to get the county back up and running now that the daily numbers being infected have dropped significantly.
Cllr Bohan highlights the effect of the awful weather across the north of the county with landslides and floods hitting Drumkeerin and Dromahair heavily after the storms of last weekend.
Other issues discussed in the episode include the problem with broadband access and the patchy availability which has been exposed heavily with the extra need in recent months, the percolation testing for one off rural housing, the lack of funding for Local Inprovement Scheme projects, the development work in Carrick on Shannon and the retirement of Garda Supt Kevin English.
She also congratulates the newly elected officials of Leitrim County Council and the Municipal Districts alongside her with all three female members of the council securing positions in the elections held last week.
