4 months since Donegal floods

The past four months have been a stressful time for Donegal residents following efforts to restore homes after devastating floods in August.

63% of the average monthly rain fell in just nine hours in Inishowen, destroying bridges, vehicles, business and homes. Residents have been rebuilding their livelihoods following negotiations with insurance companies, and where complete re-builds have been required, seeking planning permission also.

Insurance can be a stressful matter, but when it comes to property, the most important thing is to have adequate cover for your buildings and contents, so that in the event of flooding or other event, you are covered.

Buildings insurance will cover the structure of your home in the event of fire, flood, subsidence, theft and falling trees. Contents insurance will protect your belongings against theft, fire and flooding. The average family of four will have contents of approximately €30,000 in value.
