IFA Flood Project Chairman Padraic Joyce has said that the recently published CFRAMS Flood Risk Management Plan for the River Shannon and surrounding areas ignores the plight of farmers and rural dwellers who have suffered enormously from recent flood events.
At a meeting with OPW Minister Sean Canney last week, IFA President Joe Healy said farmers have an expectation that significant efforts will be made to alleviate flooding, which has become more frequent in recent times.

IFA Flood Project Chairman Tom Turley has said that farmers and communities along the Shannon want to see action on works to alleviate flooding following the devastation of last winter’s severe weather.
Today’s Comptroller and Auditor General report on Strategic Planning for Flood Risk Management does not bode well for the Shannon River Basin Management Co-ordination Group, established earlier this year in response to severe flooding on the river, IFA Flood Project Chairman Tom Turley has warned.
