There was an air of celebration among community representatives in Ballinamore Community Centre for the launch of a new “Local Link” Transport initiative for Ballinamore on Monday night last. Camilla Kelly, manager of Sligo-Leitrim-Roscommon Transport said that this represented a major investment in the south Leitrim area and was the first fully integrated transport system to be established in the country.
Tributes were paid to Padraig Griffin for the trojan efforts he has… been making over the years to secure this Transport link for all the communities throughout South Leitrim. Mr Griffin thanked all who supported his efforts over the years and, in particular, all of the public representatives who had helped in the past. He paid a special tribute to Michael Fitzmaurice TD who was the one who had introduced Ballinamore Community Council to Ms Camilla Kelly(SLR Transport) and this had led directly to the establishment of the new transport links. Mr Griffin also paid tribute to Ms Camilla Kelly for her commitment and untiring efforts to provide transport services within the region.
