Noah’s Arch Gets Its Higher Ground


atest press release from Cllr Jodie Neary, issued on Friday, February 19th 2021…

Social Democrats Cllr for Greystones District Jodie Neary has said Irish Rail have confirmed they have addressed flooding under the second arch by South Beach in Greystones.

Cllr Neary raised the issue as frequent flooding was restricting access to dog walkers, sea swimmers and beach users, confirming, “In correspondence to me, Irish Rail have addressed the issue. There was a build up of sand under the bridge that created a dam effect resulting in water ponding under the arch.

They have also confirmed that this will be checked every few weeks and they are in discussions with the local Council about a longer term fix. I will continue to liaise with them on this and other issues as well as with the Council to ensure flooding is addressed in the area.

“Ongoing flooding remains a concern at South Beach playground which I’ve also been in touch with the Council about and hope to see a resolution to this in the near future.

“I will update the public once I receive more information,” concludes Cllr Neary.
