Cllr. Ivan Connaughton has welcomed works that commenced this week in Donamon by Roscommon County Council to address flooding issues after representations he made following concerns from local residents.
He said: “The flooding on the road between Clooneycolgan Church to Doorleys was of serious concern to locals, where the drains were blocked and flooded the road regularly, leaving the road impassable to many user. Nearby the local road between Husseys and the island that leads on to the N60 would regularly be impassable due to a flood of c.3 foot high and this was a major inconvenience to locals accessing the church and national school and many road-users on route to Ballymoe, Williamstown and Castlerea.”
Cllr. Connaughton concluded: “I am delighted to be of assistance in solving these flooding problems. Works on the Slieve and Corbally road from the church have commenced this week and the dip in the road between Husseys and the main road will be raised next week. Another serious problem in this area is parking around the church/ school, particularly on days of funerals. I am working with community representatives to address this issue.”
