I have been advised that Clare County Council submitted an application to the OPW under the Minor Flood Mitigation Works & Coastal Protection Scheme for the provision of rock armour to protect against cliff erosion caused by waves and tides at Spanish Point.

Following assessment of the application and further to a meeting between OPW and Clare County Council in May 2019, the OPW has requested additional information. When received, assessment of the application will be completed and a reply will issue to the County Council.
