Works are good news

EDITOR – The news of the flood defence work in Louth should be greeted with enthusiasm.

In these times of cuts it is good news the work has been budgeted for but it is not something that would have been possible to cut.

It is not a luxury, it is a necessity to protect homes and businesses in Louth from future flooding.

For all those who suffered in the 2007 floods this will come as a welcome relief and it can only be hoped the work is completed before another incident.

We should congratulate all those involved in making this happen.

It should make the difference between living in fear of anything ever happening again and future security.

Good news for Louth.
