Flood relief measures to be put in place in Banagher

Flooding in Banagher in 2015

Portavolla residents in Banagher will see a large flood prevention clay embankment installed around the boundary of their estate in the coming weeks.

That's according to Cllr John Leahy who said that this will address the flooding issue in the estate which resulted in many residents having to evacuate to emergency accommodation in 2015.

He added that it was 'great news for the area' noting that it was one of many areas he highlighted in the flooding reports to the Council and the Minister.
