Funding approval for Flood Relief Works at Portumna

I have been informed by the Office of Public Works that they have allocated funding of €16,875 for a Minor Works flood relief scheme at Gortaha, Portumna.
‘The works being funded include the replacement of an existing culvert with larger 450mm diameter pipe work. The works are essential in alleviating flooding in this area where there have been many instances of flooding over many years.
‘Galway County Council will be carrying out the works and I expect the works to be completed early 2019. I continue to work with Galway County Council and the Office of Public Works in the provision of funding for these very important Minor Works Schemes throughout Galway, and I want to acknowledge the work and cooperation of both of these organisations in securing this funding.’
