Cork North West TD Michael Creed has welcomed the allocation of €10,000 from the OPW to Cork County Council for minor flood relief on the River Sullane through Ballyvourney Ballymakeera.  Commenting on the allocation, Deputy Creed said;

“There have been several flooding incidents in the Ballyvourney area in recent years.  While there is a long term project to solve the flooding issues in the area in development, this funding should provide a short term relief to the flooding issue.  The works include the removal of overhanging growth & other obstacles to river for 3.4 miles from Ballyvourney Bridge downstream”.

“These works are to be carried out by Cork County Council and do not impact on the Lee CFRAMS project being undertaken by the OPW”.
