“Over the coming months, Fingal County Council will receive funds totalling €207,000 to improve flood relief in Aspen, Swords, and Rolestown in North County Dublin.

“€54,000 will be administered to Aspen, where work will focus on increasing the channel capacity by widening the Gaybrook stream along with a 200 metre length. This should alleviate long standing drainage issues affecting homeowners in the area.
