“PRIVATE land must accept water from the public roadway but not the other way around.” This passage from Section 67 of the Roads Act 1993 was quoted to Cllr Michael Lalor when he raised the issue of eliminating flooding problems at Clonin.

“Flooding has destroyed land,” remarked Cllr Lalor and Senior Executive Engineer Michael Malone informed him that all reports of flooding will be assessed against the legislation.

Mr Malone added, “I don’t make the laws and I’ll be writing to at least seven land owners around under the Act and they’ll be given a reasonable period of time to respond.”
