Moran Hopes Shannon Maintenance Will Begin Next Year

Written 3 years ago by Newsroom

Kevin ‘Boxer’ Moran says he hopes maintenance work on the Shannon will begin next year.

The flood risk group, involving a number of state agencies, is drawing up a plan to reduce the build up of silt and vegetation in the river.

OPW Minister Sean Canney said last week that he would not put a date on when the programme would start because it will take time to get around any obstacles.

Longford Westmeath Independent Alliance Deputy Moran says he doesn’t expect any major delays.
