Mammoth effort to get county back on its feet again

The county is slowly getting back to normal after a week that saw Storm Emma and The Beast from East conspire to lock us up in our homes, stop the water flowing and cut electricity.

Fingal County Council Chief Executive Paul Reid said: 'Storm Emma presented Fingal with various problems such as burst mains, depleted reservoirs and blocked roads and paths. Our Operations, Water Services, Housing and Community and Corporate Affairs Departments have worked extremely hard since last Tuesday to ensure that residents were safe and able access roads as soon as possible.

'I am extremely proud of the staff and was delighted to receive so much positive feedback from residents and businesses. I would also like to thank the community volunteers who worked to clear roads and check in on vulnerable residents, as well as our Crisis Management Team.'
