Longford County Council has launched a new citizen text alert system.

Using the Mapalerter system, the IT team of the council have been working on developing a system to streamline notifications relating to council service disruptions that will be relevant to users own local areas based on their Eircodes.

This may include things like relevant road closures, floods, severe weather, water outages and updates on National Broadband Ireland Fibre rollout.

People will be able to register for the service online at MapAlerter or by completing a form that will be available at public counters and libraries.

Fine Gael Cllr Garry Murtagh originally called for an enhanced communication system that would work between the council, Gardaí and communities.

Paying tribute to the great work of the authority's IT team on the project, Cllr Murtagh says he's delighted with the tool.
