Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
They have just recovered the Dundrum Road from the Dodder at Milltown to the village, thats about 1.25 miles. There wasn't much wrong with it in fairness, I drive it every day. Now they have dug up the concrete path in Dundrum village and replaced it with an identical concrete path. Again, there wasn't much wrong with the old one.
Last year they spent 10 months completely resurfacing the Churchtown Road, purely to add a bus lane. Only one bus uses this road, the 17 which travels about four times a day. Has Jackie Healy Ray been parachuted into my constituency without me noticing, or is this some new facet of council madness?

There are plenty of secondary roads throughout the country badly in need of repair - and for which no funds are allegedly available.  Road maintenance is the responsibility of local councils rather than the NRA=National Roads Authority, so that is probably where your query should be directed. Do you have a powerful local FG TD?
