Independent Deputy for Galway West, Noel Grealish has welcomed the announcement that an exhibition of the Claregalway and Clare River flood alleviation works are to go public display on Friday 16th November in the Arches Hotel, Claregalway at 11 a.m.
‘This exhibition will be launched by the Minister of State with responsibility for the OPW, Brian Hayes at 11am and he will also outline details of the work that has been completed to date, the works that are still outstanding and a timescale for the completion of this work,’ said Deputy Grealish.
‘I am encouraging all those who were affected by flooding in November 2009 to attend the launch of this exhibition as they will have an opportunity to meet the Minister and discuss the works that are to be carried out and learn how it will affect them,’ he said.
‘Further flood alleviation works will be carried out as part of the overall scheme of remedial works, including drainage works at Carnmore East, which is expected to commence in 2013 and it is hoped that when this work is completed it will prevent a recurrence of the devastating floods of November 2009.’
‘This exhibition will remain on display for four weeks and I would encourage all those affected or concerned about flooding to try and attend the launch on November 16th or visit the exhibition before it closes,’ Deputy Grealish concluded.
