Written 1 year ago by Newsroom


An extra four million euro is being allocated to flood defences in Athlone.

Independent Alliance TD Kevin ‘Boxer’ Moran has announced 10 million will be spent on protecting nearly 550 houses along the banks of the Shannon, an increase of over 300.

OPW staff have today begun excavations before the works begin and is expected to be completed over the next two years.

Speaking at The Quay, Minister Moran says it’s a step in the right direction.
