The Office of Public Works are working in partnership with their consultants, Local Authorities and other stakeholders to deliver the CFRAM Study for the Shannon River Basin District (RBD). Work on the study started in January 2011 and will be completd in 2016.

The Shannon RBD includes the entire catchment of the River Shannon and its estuary, covering some 17,800km2 and 20% of the island of Ireland. The RBD covers parts of 17 counties: Limerick, Clare, Tipperary, Offaly, Westmeath, Longford, Roscommon, Kerry, Galway, Leitrim, Cavan, Sligo, Mayo, Cork, Laois, Meath and Fermanagh.

The study will focus on areas known to have experienced flooding in the past and areas that may be subject to flooding in the future either due to development pressures or climate change. The final output from the study will be Catchment Flood Risk Management Plans, which will define the current and future flood risk in the Shannon RBD and set out how this risk can be managed.

This website has been set up to provide information and to keep you informed of the project's progress. There will be many opportunities to become involved and these will be advertised in your local area, as well as on this website.
