Senator Roisin Garvey (GP) has previously called on Clare County Council to avail of financial measures to address water pollution. “The July stimulus has millions of euros allocated for immediate action as needed for repairs and maintenance. Clare County Council has a strong case as it is a water emergency,” she stated.
