The Office of Public Works says the River Flesk in Killarney rose by two metres on Sunday such was the extent of rainfall and flooding over the weekend.
That’s higher than it’s been for over 20 years. The comments were made by Conor Galvin of the Office of Public Works which is hosting a number of public consultations in the county about flood risk management. Consultations are taking place in Dingle and Castleisland today, and in Milltown and Kenmare tomorrow, on how flood risks can be best addressed by the OPW. Experts are inviting members of the public to have their say on flood management plans in their area.
