HIGHLIGHTING THE SHANNON'S
Catastrophic Flooding Risk

Note dated 1.11.20

Over a year has gone by since my first warning of potential disaster.
 
The rate of Climate Change continues to accelerate. And flood risk continues to increase!
Yet our "head-in-the-sand" politics still gives lip-service to the problem, while refusing to make the fundamental changes long-required!

Nor is change likely to occur, until Administration of the Shannon Catchment Region undergoes radical reform. A Gender Balanced Unitary Authority with overriding administrative control, is the obvious solution.
