For everyone out in foreign pastures (even you john) clonmel was hit by the worst floods (ever) last week. Naturally I missed the floods but because I was in Spain. For anyone that knows Clonmel you will understand me when I say it was bad!
All the bridges in clonmel were closed at one stage. On friday Maurice and Daddy were lucky to get to work and they had to go down the lane beside our house down to the Ferryhouse bridge because that was the only place to cross the river. Clonmel town was closed off on thursday, cops were advising people not to travel there!
When I got home saturday afternoon the top of the railing that runs along the quay was barely visible! The town only got back to normal on sunday.
With that I just want to wish our very own Caroline Traenor the best of luck on sunday. She is flying the flag for the Ronan clan in the New York Marathon! Rather her than me:-)
