On this week's 'Between the Lines' programme, Andrea is joined by a panel of experts to discuss flooding in Ireland.

Together they discuss what causes the flooding of our rivers, what can be done to mitigate instances of flooding in urban areas as our climate continues to get warmer, and the limitations of engineering solutions when it comes to reducing its effects in the catchment areas of our larger rivers.

  • Professor Mary Bourke, an expert on flood risk & management at Trinity College Dublin’s Dept of Geography.
  • John Gibbons, environmental journalist.
  • Brian O’Donovan, Senior Engineer at Carlow County Council.
