Green’s EU candidate, Grace O’Sullivan, checks out flood defences in Wexford

danny, grace, trevor at barrier

Grace O’Sullivan, Green Party candidate for Europe in Ireland South, joins Cllr Danny Forde and Trevor Sargent at a retail unit’s flood barrier on Wexford’s quay front. Look at the height of it! Yet three of the highest recorded tides in the port of Wexford have happened in the past 15 years. ┬áSo perhaps those flood barriers need to be that high. Next time you drive along the quays in Wexford keep an eye out for these barriers and let the efforts of this one retailer pause and wonder if, as sea levels continue to rise, we may yet be looking to the Dutch for much more extensive flood controls along our water front.
