47 schemes around the country in places like Limerick and Dundalk are getting funding to defend homes against flooding. Kevin Boxer Moran is the minister involved.

"They've identified the flood prone areas" - long term they'll need to spend 1Bn Euro and KBM is looking for an undertaking from the government for it.


Meanwhile in Cork....

Cork City, Bandon, Clonakilty and Douglas flood relief works have already been approved.

In SF world everything is a bad news binary choice.

Terrified of their Dublin masters. They really are a yellow bunch of pansies.

Is this the money they're going to spend on raising quay walls in concrete that many experts say won't work as required, rather than going for the down-stream flood barriers that has been dismissed because of the OPW saying it would cost too much? The OPW's costings being called into question? That what you talking about?
