People living in Achill and the surrounding areas are still experiencing difficulties almost four weeks after a brace of storms hit the west coast.

During Storms Isha and Jocelyn, power outages affected areas across the region for days, and in particular along the coast line.

Fianna Fáil Cllr McNamara spoke to Midwest Radio Rian Bailey on this morning’s Morning Edition:
