Added July 21st, 2017
Limerick TD and Minister of State for Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform has received confirmation from his colleague Minister of State Kevin Moran, that the Office of Public Works have made an allocation of €55,800 to Limerick City and County Council to carry out works at Ballycullen, Askeaton.
“This is good news from the OPW. The office have over the recent past, made a number of allocations to Limerick through the Council to have minor flood works done across Limerick. I work closely with Minister of State Moran and I have been raising a number of projects with him in his role as Minister for the OPW that I would like to see completed in Limerick.”
Patrick O’Donovan added that he continues to raise a number of other flooding issues with OPW through the Minister’s Office and he is hopeful of making progress.
“Over the last few years the Government has been prioritising flood relief works on roads in particular. I hope in the coming months with the establishment of the new Department of Community and Rural Affairs that we will be able to make improvements on our huge rural road network. This is a priority for Minister Michael Ring and something I intend to pursue with him.”
