New homes for flood families
AROUND 17 families who were forced out by severe flooding two years ago are getting grants to buy new homes.
The Cabinet yesterday authorised payments from a €4m fund to re-locate the families. Around 13 of the families are based in Galway, three are in Roscommon and one is in Offaly.
But there was disappointment yesterday for one Galway family who had been told that they were not among those being re-located.
