There is good news for the flood hit communities of Quilty, Spanish Point and Whitestrand this evening after the Government announced the go ahead for a coastal erosion and flood risk study.

Minister of State Mr Simon Harris T.D. has approved funding for a single coastal erosion and flood risk management study for the section of coast from Quilty to Milltown Malbay with particular focus on Quilty, Spanish Point and Whitestrand.

The section of coast in question, which includes Seafield, was one of the worst affected by serious tidal flooding and storm damage during late 2013 and early 2014.
