Taoiseach Tours Dunkellin River Flood Protection Project

An Taoiseach, Mr. Enda Kenny T.D. and the Minister of State with responsibility for the Office of Public Works and Flood Relief, Sean Canney, T.D., yesterday visited Craughwell, Co Galway where works are underway on the Dunkellin River & Aggard Stream Flood Relief Scheme.

Speaking after his visit to the site, Mr. Kenny said: “Projects such as this one at Dunkellin underline the Government’s ongoing commitment to vital flood relief projects all over the country.

“We have provided €430 million for Flood Risk Management in our Capital Investment Plan 2016 to 2021. This will see the annual allocation for flood defense works more than double from €45m to €100m.

“The Dunkellin Scheme is one of six major schemes already commenced in 2016 and this €6 million project will be of great benefit and comfort to the local community.”

Construction works on the Dunkellin Scheme, which is being managed and led by Galway County Council, commenced in June of this year and will be carried out over a three-year period.

Works on the bypass channel at Craughwell started in September and should be completed in the first half of 2017.
