Storm Imogen leaves flooding in its wake

Clare County Council is warning of the risk of further coastal flooding on this Monday evening because of a high tide coinciding with the sea surge and continuing strong winds from Storm Imogen.

High Tide is forecast for 5.30pm on the Clare coast and the Shannon Estuary.

The Council is warning members of the public to avoid exposed coastal locations and roads affected by flooding on Monday morning.

Flooding occurred at a number of locations along the Clare coastline due to a combination of a significant storm surge, strong westerly winds and a high tide at 5.15am.

The worst affected locations on Monday afternoon are at Kilcredaun and Rinvella near Carrigaholt, Ross Bay, Marine Parade in Kilkee, White Strand (Miltown Malbay), Lahinch promenade and carpark, and at Doolin Pier carpark.

Council staff are working throughout the West Clare Municipal District to remove storm debris from the affected locations and to carry out necessary repairs to damaged infrastructure.
