A delivery driver was 'knocked back into his van' by the sheer force generated by the speed of a passing truck between on the Kilkenny-Clonmel road recently, Cllr Siobhán Ambrose stated at a meeting of Clonmel Borough District.

The incident occurred between Ballypatrick Cross and Mayladstown. 

Local residents have warned that a fatality would occur there because of the excessive speed of motorists, many of whom were crossing over the yellow line at the side of the road.

An animal had been killed by a vehicle on that stretch of road a fortnight previously.

Cllr Ambrose requested that the council contact the National Roads Authority about the situation. 

She also requested that the garda report about safety in the area would be sent to Transport Infrastructure Ireland.

The route sees a lot of cross-border traffic daily between Kilkenny and Tipperary.
