Kearney Welcomes Local Flood Relief Plans


Frank Kearney has welcomed the recent news from the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform that the planned flood alleviation works on the River Clare are close to shovel ready.

PQ No. 339 – 25th February – River Clare/Claregalway Flood Defence Works submitted by Sean Kyne T.D. on February 25, 2014

To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform the works planned for flood alleviation on the River Clare in Galway; when it is hoped that such works will begin; and if he will make a statement on the matter. – Seán Kyne TD


The Office of Public Works, in association with Galway County Council, has developed a Flood Relief Scheme under the Arterial Drainage Acts for the Clare River in the environs of Claregalway, Caherlea/Lisheenavalla, and the Carnmore/Cashla areas. The Claregalway Scheme is designed to provide protection for houses, roads and businesses in the area against a flood event that has a 1% chance of occurring in any given year – often referred to as the 1-in-100 year event, including an allowance for climate change. This is the standard level of protection provided for by OPW flood relief schemes.
The Scheme has been approved by the Commissioners of Public Works and has been submitted to the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform for Confirmation (i.e. statutory approval). It is expected that construction will commence within a short period of approval being given by the Minister.
