TRAIN services between Limerick and Ennis are likely to be disrupted for some time.
Councillor Pat McMahon, who inspected flooding on the railway line on Tuesday, said that at one point, close to Mooghaun Bridge, the entire track is flooded for a distance of about 150 metres.
Councillor McMahon said that the area in question is notoriously prone to flooding and predicted it would take a minimum of three weeks to dry out.
Flooding in the area has disrupted train services on numerous occasions over the years, but Councillor McMahon said that the will to solve the problem has been lacking. “Nothing has happened. There has been lots of reports and lots of deputations, but the bottom line is, nothing has happened.”
