148 people in receipt of Humanitarian Aid funding following last months floods

Almost 150 people in Donegal have received Humanitarian Aid funding following last month's flash flooding that devastated Inishowen.

135 people have received the initial emergency funding of €150 under Stage 1 of the Humanitarian Aid, to help cover the cost of purchasing food and clothing.

An additional 13 households have received Stage 2 payments with a further 23 currently being processed.
