Mayor of Clare Cllr Joe Arkins said: “With the winter season now upon us, this service may prove very useful to members of the public especially when one considers the severe weather that has affected Clare in recent years.”

Urban McMahon, head of information systems, Clare County Council, said: “This is a free service that is being provided by Clare County Council. There are no registration costs and there are no charges associated with receiving SMS or e-mails.

“The events covered by the alert system include scheduled road works and closures, major road accidents and incidents, floods, severe weather warnings, boil water notices, and community and sporting events. We are looking to maximise its potential as a useful method of communication with our consumers.”
