Cabra Flooding

I continue to work to get Dublin City Council to protect homes in Cabra from flooding. Last year swales were created on Drumcliff and Killala greens to provide flood protection. After the swales were completed I raised concerns with Dublin City Council about the fact that the swales don’t empty fully and promptly. Following my representations DCC re-examined the swales and carried out remedial works which should make a noticeable improvement in the drainage of the swales. I continue to pursue flood protection measures for residents of Cabra East. Dublin City Council is considering a number of options to reduce flood risk in Cabra east.
