FURTHER ROAD CLOSURE LAST STRAW FOR BALLYHOOLY TRADER
“It’ll probably put us under.” That was the stark response of Ballyhooly service station and Costcutter shop owner, James Beecher to the shock news this week that the N72 Ballyhooly to Fermoy road is to close again for a further month to facilitate the completion of roadworks.
It only reopened on the Saturday afternoon before Christmas following road rehabilitation works on a section of the national secondary road that took two months to complete.
Before that James’ business was also adversely affected by the diversions put in place due to the closure of the N72 Mallow to Fermoy section of the road, where road realignment works began in early October.
