Kildare County Council Statement On Flooding

: 11/23/2017 - 15:44

The Kildare County Council front line services, namely the Road Crews, the Fire Service and the Civil Defence have responded to numerous calls throughout yesterday and today in regard to issues caused by the heavy rainfall experienced yesterday, (22/11/2017). The main focus yesterday was to ensure that homes were protected. Our teams provided sand bags where required and pumped water away from affected areas where possible.

The focus overnight has shifted to clearing roads that were closed due to flooding and tremendous progress has been made in regard to reopening roads with all up to date details included on the Kildare County Council web site and all our social media platforms.

The public are being requested and reminded to take care when travelling on roads throughout the county, and in particular local roads where flood waters may not have receded as yet.

The public are also being warned that temperatures are expected to drop to -3 tonight which will result in dangerous road conditions. 


Kildare County Council crews will be salting designated routes but the public are being warned to take extra care when using roads and footpaths."
