A popular amenity used by walkers in Adare will be closed to the public for the remainder of this week, the local authority is advising.

Limerick City and County Council has announced the temporary closure of the River Walkway on the outskirts of the village to facilitate “site investigation works” as part of the Adare Flood Relief Scheme.

The closure, which continues until Friday, stretches from the access point at St Nicholas Church on the N21 to Pope’s

Quay on the L1423 Station Road.

The local authority says any inconvenience caused by the closure “is regretted”

The project, which is being led by the council, involves the assessment and development of a flood relief scheme and other measures to manage the existing flood risk in Adare, and also the potential for significant increases in this risk due to climate change, ongoing development and other pressures that may arise in the future.

A steering group, which includes representatives of the Office of Public Works, was established for the project in October 2021.

The preferred solution has yet to be confirmed.
