Flood Relief Schemes Status
I am advised that in 2015, Clare County Council received funding of €65,000 from the OPW, under the Minor Flood Mitigation Works & Coastal Protection Scheme, to undertake a coastal erosion & risk management study for Quilty to Miltown Malbay, which made recommendations for works at Spanish Point, Co Clare.
In September 2018, following the recommendations of that study, Clare County Council made an application to the OPW under the Minor Flood Mitigation Works & Coastal Protection Scheme for the provision of rock armour to protect against cliff erosion caused by waves and tides at Spanish Point. This application is currently under consideration. As soon as a decision is made on this application, this will issue to the council.
