Funding to repair Clare piers

MONDAY’S Government announcement of almost €233,000 for storm damaged Clare piers will be met with relief in the communities affected.

Clare Labour TD, Michael McNamara  said that four piers will benefit from a funding package for the repair of public owned piers, harbours and slipways damaged during the winter storms.

Funding for four Clare Piers is as follows:

  • Liscannor                                             €130,950
  • Ballyvaughan Pier                           €65,700
  • Seafield Pier                                      €18,000
  • Kilbaha Pier                                       €18,000

“These funds will be made available to Clare County Council for the immediate repair of the piers concerned as part of an extended capital programme for 2014. I welcome the Clare allocation announced by Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney,” commented Deputy McNamara.

“When I met him in Liscannor, where he surveyed the storm damage, I have no doubt that the minister was shocked by the scale of the damage and that fact that he has reacted so swiftly is very good news,”  Deputy McNamara added.
