Nature Trail victim of heavy rains

The amount of rain which has fallen in recent weeks is now very evident in the high floods being released from Poulaphuca, writes Brian Byrne.

One result has been a periodic flooding of the pathway along the old weir which is a key section of the Nature Trail developed two years ago by the Bridge Camphill Community.

The Trail is closed at the moment for safety reasons. It remains to be seen how much serious damage has been done to the section which is underwater at peak flood times now.
