And so, this is the final newsletter about the River Dargle Flood Defence Scheme. 31 years after ‘Hurricane Charlie’ devastated Little Bray in 1986, the people and environs are fully protected from a 1 100-year ar river flood event and a 1 in 200 tidal event.
The River Dargle Flood Defence Scheme was officially opened by Mr Kevin “Boxer” Moran T.D., Minister of State at the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform with special responsibility for the Office of Public Works and Flood Relief, on Wednesday 8th November 2017.
On behalf of Wicklow County Council, the Office of Public Works and Tom Foley Management Ltd, we would like to express our thanks and appreciation to all the residents and property owners affected directly or indirectly by the works, for their patience and understanding during the disturbance that this type of work inevitably brings.
