The Whitehorse and Nore rivers have flooded in recent years.
Over €120,000 in funding has been granted for flood defenses in a midlands county.
In recent years both the Whitehorse and Nore rivers have flooded their surrounding areas in Laois.
There's €58,500 being provided to clear deadwood and debris and to prune trees that are causing obstructions along a 6.5km stretch of the Whitehorse River from Mountrath.
While €63,000 is being granted for the same works on the Nore River in the South of the county.
