The Ennis South Flood Relief Scheme is being progressed by Clare County Council with funding provided by the Office of Public Works.

The tender process for this project is nearing completion, with formal letters of regret and intent as appropriate due to issue in the coming days. Following the prescribed waiting period, the tender will then be formally awarded to the successful contractor, and with mobilisation time for the contractor taken into account it is hoped that works will commence during March 2019.
