Must take action now
A Fingal senator has said that Fingal County Council 'must take remedial emergency action now on Burrow Portrane coastal erosion.'
Senator James Reilly said: 'The high tides, storms and recent severe weather have put homes at risk in the Burrow Portrane where a substantial amount of land was lost to the sea. One home in particular is at a cliff edge and needs emergency action to save it.'
He added: 'I am calling on Fingal Council to take the required action now as an emergency measure to secure the homes at this location. As far as I am aware there is precedent for this emergency action.'
