WATCH: Dramatic scenes in flooded Prosperous estate

The scene in Barrington Court

Along with much of the county, Prosperous housing estate Barrington Court is currently flooded with houses in danger of being damaged as flood waters rise.

Barrington Court is one of the largest estates in the village and the local residents' association says that "every winter the residents on the road into Barrington have their properties flooded with water and sewage from the shore outside their gardens.

"This has been reported to Irish Water Uisce Éireann and Kildare County Council many times in the past number of years to no avail."

The residents have been in contact with local politicians who have promised to request Irish Water and Kildare County Council take action urgently to fix the problem.
