Minister Tours Portrane and Burrow Beach

Seán Canney, T.D. Minister of State for the Office of Public Works (OPW) and Flood Relief visited Portrane and Burrow Beach last week to see the impact that coastal erosion is having on the area.

“I am delighted to have been invited to visit Portrane today to see at first hand the impact that coastal erosion is having on this area. On a broad level, my office has surveyed and assessed the coastal erosion risk along the entire national coastline and this information has been published and is available to all local authorities,” said the minister.

“This study enables local authorities to develop appropriate plans and strategies for the sustainable management of the coastline in their counties, including the identification, prioritization and, subject to the availability of resources, the implementation of coastal protection works both of a structural and non-structural nature.”

“My office supports and assists intervention management options which are economically justified on cost benefit grounds and are environmentally sound. I know Fingal County Council is working hard to identify viable solutions to the erosion problem at Portrane and I look forward to receiving proposals from the council in due course,” concluded Mr Canney.

During his visit, the minister met with local Deputies Brendan Ryan and Darragh O’Brien and also spoke with local councilors, residents and property owners.
