Call for more flood-relief works in Cavan

It’s essential that the government provide additional funding to Cavan County Council to undertake drainage works.

That’s according to Fianna Fail Deputy Brendan Smith, who raised the issue of flooding in the Dáil recently.

He is also calling on the Government to engage with authorities in Northern Ireland to ensure drainage works are carried out on the Lough Erne in County Fermanagh.

Deputy Smith says carrying out drainage works on the Lough Erne would help alleviate flooding problems in County Cavan.
