Action sought on flooding at Pettigo

A member of the Northern Ireland assembly is calling for action on alleviating the long-running issue of flooding in the Pettigo area of County Donegal.

It follows a meeting between a representative of the North’s Rivers Agency on the issue with MLA Jemma Dolan, Erne North Councillor Siobhán Currie and Donegal Councillor Michael McMahon.

MLA Dolan said one of the main issues is the flooding at the bridge in the town where businesses are affected.

She says there is also flooding on the road to Kesh as well as flooding at Belleek around Pheonix Manor, Slaters Cross and Straddle Service Station.

Jemma Dolan is now seeking a further meeting between Rivers Agency, Donegal County Council and the Office of Public Works.
