There are calls for volunteers to be given an increased role in assisting during extreme weather events in Clare.

Newmarket-on-Fergus councillor Pat McMahon claims a number of people around the county during the recent stormy weather wanted to help and should be allowed do so where safe.

He wants to see the local authority take a co-ordinating role with the use of social media, local media and voluntary groups to help restore normality.


Fianna Fáil Cllr McMahon insists these storms will become more frequent so we must make use of who we have.
