Flood Defences in Cong

After two months without much rain and with water levels at a record low it is hard to imagine that there was such flooding around Cong less than three years ago. But the Ballinrobe office of Mayo Co. Council has given notice that flood barriers are being installed along the river beside the Cong church car park. The area of the car park close to the river will be cordoned off during this work. Able bodied people are asked to park in the public car park to allow space for those who need to park nearer to the church.
