Sligo Leitrim TD calls for emergency assistance for communities affected by mudslide

Sligo-Leitrim TD Marian Harkin is calling on the government to provide emergency assistance for a north Leitrim community affected by a devastating mudslide.

Landslides have forced two homes to be evacuated, and a bridge is now covered over with mud near Drumkeeran.

Farmers are reporting that some animals are now missing, and there are fears more rain will make the situation worse.

The Independent TD called on the government to provide emergency assistance to the region.
