The M7 was the first dual carriageway road system to be built in Ireland.

“It’s shameful that this was the first dual carriageway built in the State and there is nothing to show it ever happened,” said Cllr. Seamie Moore, calling for an information board and a stone feature to be put up.

According to Kildare County Council it has no money to meet the request.

It was also pointed out that any structure would need to be properly located “so as not to interfere with road safety.”
