Funding For Ennis Flood Defence Scheme

Government funding has been allocated to Clare County Council to allow it to undertake flood alleviation measures in the vicinity of St. Flannan’s College in Ennis. Lands and properties surrounding the secondary school were badly affected by serious flooding in November 2009.

The proposed solution involves the construction of an overflow weir and over 1,000 linear metres of culvert to by-pass an existing swallow hole located to the rear of St Flannan’s College. Clare County Council is assessing tenders for this work and expects to appoint a consultant shortly, with construction work to be completed in 2011.
