South Galway Floods – Public Consultation Thu 3rd May

Your input and local knowledge is important to ensure the development of an informed publicly acceptable scheme.  It’s time to have your say!
Galway County Council intend to progress a flood relief scheme to alleviate flooding which has impacted the Gort Lowlands area. For more information you can see the leaflet below:


Mott MacDonald has been appointed by Galway County Council to carry out an Environmental Assessment of the proposed South Galway (Gort Lowlands) Flood Relief Scheme.  The purpose of this Public Consultation Day is to seek initial views from the public in relation to the key issues that should be addressed as part of the South Galway (Gort Lowlands) Flood Relief Scheme, and to highlight points of local importance that may constrain the design of potential flood alleviation measures.
Please call into Sullivan’s Hotel, on Thu 3rd May 2018 between 3pm and 9pm and give your feedback on the flooding there,.  You can fill out this questionnaire there, or at home and send it to the communications co-ordinator for the scheme, Ms. Rita Mansfield

  1. David, will you be there? I would like to talk to you about the Guaire article. I have tried to compile a list of heritage issues to add to your article, and then Bang! You wrote the next post all about Coole in a way that highlighted all my concerns. I think compiling a bulletin list of actions that took place in 2017 and 2018 would be enough, with your Coole post. What do you think?

    See you there, Tonii
