Mountmellick flood victims are being offered further help with the cost they are facing by the local St Vincent de Paul charity.

Chairman John McEvoy and committee member Bobby Delaney are urging people to contact them.

"We are there 24 seven, 52 weeks of the year. I know people think the St Vincent de Paul is only for people who are really down on their luck, but in this case that could be anybody," said Bobby to the Leinster Express.

"We are offering help in the way of food, fuel or a dig out or whatever people need. If you think we can help you, give us a call. It is as always fully confidential," he said.

"A lot of younger families might not know the work we do so we want to get the message out to the community, if they need anything, call us," Bobby Delaney said.

The number to call is 086 4003469. See more on aid relief for Mountmellick here. 

The clean up continues across the town this weekend.

Snow and ice weather warning to continue until Sunday night
