Gigantic potholes damaging vehicles

There have been two potholes on our road (which I reported two times already this year) for years now and earlier this month, Irish water contractors came and dug up the road around the potholes. One of their cement mixers fell into the ground, blocking us all in and making us late for work. I had to get a taxi. The condition at the moment is untenable, I cannot drive at any speed around or over them in order to get to my house without causing damage to my car. Please, please repair our street.

  • Please fix these huge holes in our road as they are unavoidably damaging my cars and the cars of all my neighbours and any people who come to visit.

  • The sinkhole is extremely dangerous now to both pedestrians and vehicles as the entire road is falling in and it is not possible to pass it without the axle of your car hitting it and sustaining damage. This issue has been ongoing and deteriorating for two years now.
