Work is to start next month on flood relief works in the Carraholly area outside Westport.

 A number of homes in the area were flooded during severe weather conditions almost 5 years ago, and since then, a campaign has been underway to replace the barrier that was washed away in the storm, and put other flood defences in place.

 Mayo County Council has now confirmed to Westport Independent Councillor Christy Hyland that notices are going into this week's local newspapers, advising of a road closure in the area to allow the works to go ahead.

 Councillor Hyland said it's been a long wait, but he's happy for the residents of Carraholly that the flood relief works are due to get underway shortly....
