A WHEELIE bin was placed in a pothole in Castlebar, such was its size.
The issue of potholes in the general area was raised by Councillor Blackie Gavin who wanted to know what's the problem with filling potholes.
He explained how he'd received a phonecall fromthe Fairways estate where there was a pothole two feet deep. “A brown wheelie bin was put in it.”
Calling the situation with potholes 'deplorable', he wondered how many claims have gone in to the council for damage to tyres.
“It is one of the biggest problems out there,” he said.
He was asked to send on a list to the senior engineer.
