Support for those affected by Killybegs flooding

A number of homes, businesses and other premises have been affected by yesterday evenings flooding in Killybegs and the surrounding area and the following supports are available for those affected:

Emergency Housing
Any household in need of emergency accommodation as a result of the flooding should contact the Donegal County Councils Housing service by calling 074 91 53900 or by calling into our offices in Donegal Town.
Provision of dehumidifiers and/or skips
Donegal County Council will also cover the cost of dehumidifiers and/or skips required by households or businesses as part of the flood clean-up operation. In the first instance, households and businesses in need of dehumidifiers and/or skips are being asked to arrange for hire locally and the Council will reimburse the respective costs but this arrangement is only in place for those affected by the flooding.
Alternatively households or businesses can contact the Council directly on 074 91 53900 and the Council will arrange for the provision of dehumidifiers and/or skips as required.
