He said: “While I am very much aware of the effects climate change has had on the coastal villages of Portrane and Donabate the reality is climate change is a real and present challenge that must be tackled by National and European Policies.
“Now with every storm and or high tide the village of Portrane residents and businesses can only watch as they grow closer to the sea by the day. Naturally this is causing serious anxiety and distress.
“While, the Seabees are a welcome interim emergency solution, they are not the long term answer.
“The incoming government must immediately apply a sense of urgency to this issue. Time will not wait for residents of Portrane and many other coastal communities.
“There has been enough studies, reports, consultants and experts at this stage.”
