Flood mitigation work welcome


News that flood mitigation work is to be carried out in Kiltullagh, Athenry and Killeenadeema was welcomed today by East Galway TD Paul Connaughton.
‘Over €57,000 is to be spent creating a new culvert and road crossing at Killeenadeema, Loughrea, which will bring floodwater through a road crossing and 500 metres downstream. Channel maintenance works including de-silting of culverts will take place at Knocktogher, Kiltullagh, Athenry, at a cost of €14,000.’
Galway County Council applied for both projects under the minor works scheme and approval has now been sanctioned by Minister Simon Harris TD.
