Is it true that DOE refused politicians requests from all partys for a road to completely bypass Roscommon ?

Albert Reynolds was born in Rooskey, Co Roscommon I believe. Brian Lenihan Snr was a TD for Roscommon before losing his seat in '73.
Mary McAleese's father was from Roscommon I think and she was an FF candidate in Dublin once

Frank Fahey from Galway is so far up Roscommon superhero Sean Mulryan's hole he could be classed as an honoury Rosser.

Although elected as a TD for Londford Westmeath , PJ Lenihan (father of brian Sr, although elected after him - onmly occasion in Irish Dail history) lived on the Roscommon (or as locals call it) Connacht side of Athlone

Probably because Roscommon was pared up with other counties for elections, I think east Gaillimh at a stage, definetely Longford and now poor ol Leitrim is halved and the south thrown in with all of Ros.
Mayo, God help us, always seems to punch above its weight when it comes to politicians.
