A councillor fears a road fatality will occur on a rural road near Clonmel if the flooding that is making driving conditions dangerous for motorists isn’t cleared.

Ballymacarbry-based councillor Michael J.O’Ryan has appealed to Waterford County Council to remove the surface water on the R671 between Kilmanahan and Kilmacomma.

He said he has received a lot of representations from constituents concerned about the water lodged on this road since Christmas and highlighted the problem at the last two Waterford County Council meetings.

“I’m frustrated at the lack of action. There will be loss of life there if action is not taken,” he warned.

Cllr. O’Ryan said two accidents occurred on a section of the road where there was a lot of surface water and there were three to four similar floods on the same road.
