VIDEO: Fire crews bring West Clare fire under control

SHARE

Fire crews from Kilrush and Ennis have brought under a control a forest and gorse fire which broke out in West Clare yesterday afternoon.

The fire occurred at Lough Namina, located between Connolly and Kilmihil.

Clare County Fire & Rescue Service last week warned forest owners and managers, farmers and the general public that there was a heightened risk of wildfires due to the recent dry spell.

The warning came exactly a year after scores of fires throughout the County led to hundreds of acres of land and forestry being damaged. At times during April 2013, every available fire-fighter in the County was deployed to deal with gorse and forestry fires.
