Since 2008, the Meath County Council road's budget has fallen from €36 million (including €9m for “administration and miscellaneous”), to €18.5 million for 2014. Meath Co Co Annual Budget 2008/2014

We are told there is no money but look how much we are already paying...

In 2012 the people of Meath paid over €43.5 million in Motor Tax. This figure is more than the counties of Cavan, Westmeath and Leitrim combined. It is also almost double the figure of €24 million collected in Louth.

As of October 2013, the people of Meath had contributed over €7.5 million in Local Property Tax, over one million Euro more than Cavan, Westmeath and Leitrim combined.

With four motorways threading through the south of the county, we in the north are now threatened with giant pylons and wind farms by well organised and orchestrated private and state agencies; and while we pay tax buying vehicles, on the fuel, motor tax, insurance, NCT fees, property taxes on the homes and businesses we drive to and from, if the roads we use are unsafe, dangerous or impassable, there seems to be no one responsible.

As Irish citizens, we demand our national and local government bodies provide us with a road infrastructure equal to that of all of our neighbouring counties.
