The Corrib was drained this weekend

in ireland


For about twenty four hours, between Saturday night and earlier this evening, all of the gates at the fisheries weir were shut and thus the river was drained. Over a quarter of a century in Galway, on and off, and I’ve never chanced to see this. It was extraordinary to see the river almost completely drained, and if I had been brave there were spots where I could’ve crossed sides without getting a foot wet.
