Arrangements are currently being finalised for a specific date, with the venue more than likely being the Castle Oaks hotel.“I would encourage all residents in the Castleconnell and Montpelier areas to attend and have their say. Over 100 people attended the previous Public Consultation on and this shows how important it is to everyone in the area.“Castleconnell Village and Montpelier were both flooded on the last two occasions and the fact that the original draft flood relief report did not include any measures for either location was crazy. This is now being rectified.”“Once the date and venue are fully finalised and confirmed for the Public Consultation, it will be advertised locally and I will also inform local residents,” Senator O’Donnell concluded.last_img read more
