Financial support being made available to Galway households after storm damage

Financial support is being made available for householders affected by flooding in County Galway.

Social Protection Minister Heather Humphreys has confirmed the income-tested Humanitarian Assistance Scheme will be offered to those who suffered damage in the wake of Storm Debi.

Minister Humphreys says the scheme will be extended to other affected areas as required.

Mayor of Galway, Eddie Hoare, says Galway appears to be one of the worst hit areas following Storm Debi.
