Minister of State Frank Feighan accompanied Ministerial colleagues Barry Cowen and Malcolm Noone yesterday (Monday) when they visited Drumkeeran and Drumshanbo respectively.

The plight of farmers and householders in Drumkeeran who were recently affected by recent mudslides is being monitored by the Office of Public Works (OPW) who are providing assistance to the engineering staff of Leitrim County Council as clean-up operations continue.

 

Minister of State and local Deputy Frank Feighan says he has made representations to the OPW, claiming it is “vitally important state bodies work together to assess the damage to area and provide a swift solution for all concerned.”

 

Minister Feighan made his comments after visiting areas affected by the recent mudslides on the North Roscommon/Leitrim border, where he was accompanied by Agriculture Minister Barry Cowen and local public representatives.

 

The Sligo Leitrim Deputy also accompanied newly appointed Minister of State for Heritage and Electoral Reform Malcolm Noonan who was also a visitor to Leitrim yesterday (Monday) where he met with officials from Waterways Ireland in Drumshanbo and also learned of new initiatives and developments planned for the Shannon Region.
