Sinn Féin Councillor Leanne Peacock has welcomed action from Roads Service and the Rivers Agency to address serious flooding that occurred in the Finvoy Road area of Rasharkin village during the recent period of wet weather.

Cllr Peacock said: “Residents and road users in the Finvoy road area of Rasharkin village experienced unprecedented flooding during recent adverse weather. This flooding was caused by a blockage in a Roads Service drainage grille and maintenance requirements in a small stream nearby.
