Yet not a single drop to spare. Ireland has a huge amount of rain fall, and yet we all have no water at the moment. The Big Freeze froze our water pipes, and The Big Thaw cracked them. Its been a week since the thaw and all of a sudden our house has no water. How did the pipe suddenly break? Bah! On top of all that, while watching a city planner being interviewed on the news he stated that 45% of the water in Ireland’s water reservoirs is wasted – through leaks in the reservoirs etc. How bad is that. This country is a joke!
