(021) The Clódagh River Dec. 1st 2010.
With little rain for some weeks, followed by a number of light snowfalls, the Clódagh river was at it's lowest for ages. (Clódagh - from the Gaelic - Clóideach - 'mountain torrent', which it sometimes is!). Today, Dec. 27th, it was announced that the local water supply would be cut off for 12 hours per night. A similar situation has been developing countrywide.
