The OPW hope to start construction in mid-2019 on the bypass channel of the River Deel in Crossmolina.

That's according to Mayo FG Senator Michelle Mulherin, who raised the issue at a meeting of the Oireachtas Climate Action Committee this week.

Senator Mulherin urged the OPW to begin construction on the bypass channel as soon as possible, saying people in Crossmolina are very anxious and frustrated, and live in fear of further flooding.

Previously, the OPW had indicated that it would commence the works late next year, but Senator Mulherin said this is not acceptable, and has now welcomed the earlier construction date of mid-2019.
