Water still being pumped away from homes in the North West

The Flood Relief Minister says water is still being pumped away from several homes after the recent flooding crisis.

The rain has eased since the weekend, and the water levels have receded in many places.

But efforts are still ongoing to stop houses from being flooded in several areas in the midlands, west and north west.

Minister of State Kevin ‘Boxer’ Moran says Carrick-on-Shannon, Athlone and West Clare are among the worst hit.
