Kildorrery to Mallow road, fookin lethal

Lads, anyone goin for a spin in the next few days, avoid that road like the plague. There's a half K stretch of road 2 inches deep in muck at a farmyard near the old church.

That whole stretch of road is a pain in the bollocks to drive on it, you'd be as well off going from mallow to limerick and then on to Dublin, there's only a minimal time difference

Can someone down there not report this to the council or the cops. Take a few photos of the muck and shite and mail them to the safety officer in Cork county council. Once they receive them they have a duty by law to act

Ploughing season. Same everywhere rural at the moment. You are lucky after a spin if you only come back wearing the field, and not end up in it.

Re: Kildorrery to Mallow road, fookin lethal

Land owner is legally responsible for keeping the road cleaned and in a safe condition free from contamination mud etc. Anyone losing it on that stuff should get photos and lodge a claim. I know quite a few people who succeeded in it. One guy I knew rolled a car at slow speed into a ditch on mud, went to the farmer and looked for the car to be repaired and was told to take a hike. His solicitor got him the cost of the car plus about 10k on top. Never seen that road dirty since. Council will act on a complaint

Re: Kildorrery to Mallow road, fookin lethal

I know it's a shit road, but this half mile stretch is the worst I've seen in a long time. Literally 2 inches of muck, with depths of 6 inches in spots. One sign at the start saying 'slippery road'. I'll ring and report it on Monday morning, but I don't hold out much hope. Buddy of mine burst 2 rims on his bike in a big fook-awf pothole on the r626 between Midleton and Rathcormac a few weeks ago, and CCC told him that road was in Waterford.

Re: Kildorrery to Mallow road, fookin lethal

That road always has muck on it this time of year and i know exactly the spot you describe. Theres a couple farm entrances all along that stretch and the heavy thread just flings it there when they hit the tar. Tis unacceptable and a danger obviously but they're so used to that craic that for the most part it goes unchallenged.

Further on towards mitchelstown past marshallstown i nearly came off after encountering crazy football sized clumps of tractor muck where it had gone across the road. Whats worse was this was just after the crest of dead ground. Scared the fucking shit right outta me.
