Ballyroan no longer at risk of flooding

Ballyroan is no longer at risk of flooding, according to new maps by the OPW.

“I am happy to see Ballyroan flood risk free. I hope it will have positive implications for small planning applications,” said Cllr Mary Sweeney from the village.

“The downside is a lack of funds for small rivers. I am being very parochial but the Gloreen gets flooded, I don’t know where we will get money now,” she said.

“I had a person there held up for 15 months with planning permission,” added a happy Cllr Willie Aird.
