A new permanent flood relief scheme will assist businesses and community groups in Kerry.

That’s according to Minister for State for Tourism and Sport Brendan Griffin.

The Government has approved a new scheme to help small businesses, community, voluntary and sporting bodies with the aftermath of flooding.

Successful applicants will receive a quick payment which will be capped at an upper limit of €5,000.

There is also scope for a further payment of up to €15,000 after a more detailed assessment.
