'A financial contribution must be received from the applicants towards the cost of the Local Improvement Scheme.
'Those interested in the scheme should contact my office or the Roads Department of Louth County Council so that your road / laneway can be included in a list which the County Council will be compiling' said Deputy Breathnach.
'I will be asking the Minister to open this scheme up to 3rd class roads which I feel should be included in a scheme such as this.
'Many 3rd class county roads are in a shocking state as these roads get overlooked all the time in favour of busier roads when funding is allocated', concluded Deputy Breathnach.
