Works on the Ennis South Flood Relief Scheme are on track to be substantially complete this summer.

The project is designed to protect over 120 homes and businesses from flooding, but was beset with problems including the need for a re-design of the plans in 2019 after unexpectedly poor ground conditions were discovered along a stretch of the River Fergus.

Now, however, works on the multi-million euro scheme are well underway with sections at Ballybeg and St. Flannan’s college almost complete.


Responding to a written question from his Fine Gael colleague Joe Carey, Minister of State Patrick O’Donovan has told the Dáil that the works are due to be substantially finished in the coming months.
