Taoiseach Micheál Martin has said he believes the dispute with Fianna Fáil TD James O’Connor over the National Development Plan can be resolved.
Martin said he plans to speak with his party colleague tomorrow about the issue and noted he had been in touch with him already today and yesterday.
James O’Connor said if commitments made to him are not fulfilled, he will consider resigning from the Fianna Fáil party.
O’Connor said he was told in good faith that €54 million would be provided for a road at Castlemartyr and Killeagh in the NDP plan.
“I would like to say that I will continue to fight for this project to be included in the National Development Plan, and I will not relent until I get a commitment from governments that this project will be supported,” O’Connor said.
O’Connor further said he has been “fighting the good fight” and will continue to fight for the commitment to be fulfilled.
