The OPW Minister says it’s a “fairy tale” to deliver flood relief schemes to Athlone.

Longford Westmeath Independent Alliance TD Kevin ‘Boxer’ Moran was overseeing the commencement of works at Iona Villas, which is part of a €6m investment to deal with flooding in the town.

It includes the construction of reinforced concrete walls, earth embankments and the relocation of an existing drain.

Minister Moran says it’s a dream come true.

These residents of Iona Villas are delighted to see works starting.
