10 September 2016:
€2.85m of major coastal protection works for the promenade area of Lahinch seafront has been announced.
It includes the addition of extensive rock armour storm defence to the existing structure, a new concrete apron in front of the current seawall, refurbishment of existing steps and ramped access to the beach, along with development of a new universally accessible ramp at the north end of the promenade.
The existing sea wall and boulder protection along the promenade have proven to be inadequate to prevent wave action overtopping the structure during extreme storm events. This has led to extreme flooding in the car park and adjacent properties and damage to buildings in the front of the promenade.
