Floods are a natural and inescapable part of life in the Republic of Ireland. They might be caused by overflowing rivers, coastal storms and blocked or overworked drainage systems. The subsequent risk to property can be particularly acute in urban areas. Our Ireland FloodMap addresses this complexity by being the first to use the highest-level topographical data, LiDAR, and the most current hydrological science provided by the OPW’s Flood Studies Update.
Clear presentation of flood risk scenarios
Covering 100% of the country, Ireland FloodMap equips insurers with accurate, detailed and easy-to-understand flood information for all major sources of flooding – river, tidal, and surface water (pluvial). It enables you to quickly present flood risk scenarios to customers, brokers or underwriting teams visually, or by means of a flood risk score.
