Flood Defence Work In Clonlara To Begin In April 2021

Work on the long-awaited flood defences for Clonlara will get underway in April 2021.

An Bord Pleanála granted planning permission for the construction of a flood defence embankment in the village earlier this month.

The area has experienced recurrent flooding in recent years, with the Springfield area among the hardest hit.


Clare Fianna Fail TD Cathal Crowe says work now needs to begin to remove debris and silt that has amassed in the river near Clonlara.
