Re: Re: university of limerick
isnt it FASCINATING that Clare County Council have just given planning permission to UL for development on 27 acres of floodplain immediatedly to the north of WestburyCorbally. Once built it will have horrendous effects on this area when the next flood arives. Unbelievable

I must admit that Iâ€™m taken aback by the extent of these floods from Oâ€™Briensbridge down as far as Corbally. One would think the Ardnacrusha head race had never existed as I was always of the impression that the 1920â€™s Shannon Scheme diverted huge volumes of water away thus reducing the water levels of the original river all year round.
Will the UL still go ahead now with the four raised sports pitches and perimeter earthen berm?
Or alternatively instead of raising the pitches why not develop them as part of the flood plain?
There must be another 20.000 acres of flood plains up stream that will have to be revisted.
