Offaly road 'partially collapses' following Storm Ali

Offaly road 'partially collapses' following Storm Ali

A resident has reported 'a partial collapse' of a road near Pullough this afternoon. 

The collapse occurred on the main Blueball to Pullough road and was reported to Offaly County Council on Wednesday following the passage of Storm Ali through the county. 

It's unclear if the inclement weather had an effect on the road with very little rain falling in the county during the storm.

It's understood the passing of heavy goods vehicles may have contributed to the collapse which appears to be causing minimal disruption.

Despite this, caution is advised. 

Offaly County Council informed the Offaly Express that they were aware of the incident and had referred it to the area engineer for the Birr Municipal District for attention. 

Motorists are advised to proceed with caution at this time.
