Red Cross Appeal for flood victims

THE Irish Red Cross – Dublin has launched the Ireland Floods Appeal in aid of families affected by the flooding across much of the country, including Clare.

As with previous national flood appeals, The Irish Red Cross will work closely with the Community Welfare Services of the
Department of Social Protection to identify those most in need of assistance. As well as Clare, other areas badly hit include Cork, Limerick, Louth, Waterford and Wexford.

Anyone in the County of Clare in the affected areas that wish to apply for assistance from the Irish Red Cross should first contact The Irish Red Cross – Clare Area, James Lafferty (086-3659708) or email laffertyjames19582013@gmail.com; and in turn should contact their local Community Welfare Office

The Irish Red Cross – Clare Area will be appealing for funds over the next few weeks through a series of events.
