HOPES HIGH OF NO FLOOD IMMINENT IN ENNISCORTHY
There are high hopes that the River Slaney – which has been swollen by the recent run of heavy rain – won’t flood in Enniscorthy despite earlier concerns.
However, a close watch is being kept on the fast-flowing river for the time being, although the danger of it flooding is receding;
But authorities are now confident that the river won’t breach it’s banks in the town, although the level is very high and the river is fast-flowing.
And with a better forecast over the next few days the danger should recede even more as rainfall levels dip.
