Flooding on the Clontarf Road - May 27th 2017

Flooding

There was flooding on the Clontarf Road following rainfall on Saturday, May 27th that resulted in parts of the road being temporarily closed. A representative of the Clontarf Resident's Association sent us an album of photos as well as providing some narrative over the situation. See the full album here 

Context from the CRA

"Firstly, as most residents will know this is NOT an issue that relates to the sea. This is rainwater (pluvial) flooding. The sea has actually been calm all day. The Naniken River culvert and drains are and have always been the flooding problem in this section of the Clontarf Road.

DCC opened the new cycleway from Bull Bridge to Causeway Road on Friday, 5th May 2017.  CRA refused to attend this event as the work is incomplete.

In this context, we asked each of our local…
