DAMAGES estimated to run into millions of euros have devastated West Cork communities and businesses following flash flooding on last night.
West Cork TD Christopher O’Sullivan visited some of the worst affected areas tofday and said that his heart goes out to the people affected, both businesses and homes, by the torrential downpours.
Roads between Rosscarbery and Glandore and in Brulea, Tralong, Rosscarbery and Downeen/Millcove have been completely washed away.
Mr O’Sullivan said the Cork County Council would assess the damage, estimate the cost for repairing the roads and apply for emergency funding.
“They are currently compiling a complete list of damaged roads so please let them know about your area so that it is included. I have already included any roads that have been flagged to me. I have also emailed Michael McGrath asking him to support any application for emergency funding to repair this and any other flood-affected roads.”
