Suited and booted – Inspecting the drainage

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Joe Heaney, Building Surveyor for the project getting suited up to go down and inspect the drainage culvert that runs from the lake down through the property, under the courtyard and reception right through the gardens and under the main road and out into the lough!!

Excess water from the property should drain through this culvert down into the Lough but over time the culvert has collapsed in places causing the water to back up and flood the property and the gardens, especially during high tides. Part of the conservation project will be to identify the damaged areas and repair the drainage system to prevent future flooding.
