ESB advises that the flow of water through Parteen Weir will remain at 230 cumecs (cubic metres per second) today Friday 12th February 2016. The situation will be reviewed again tomorrow and any changes to the flow in the coming days will be advised by press release, as well as through the normal channels.

This level of water flow will continue to have associated flooding to land and property in the vicinity of the Shannon downstream of Parteen Weir including the areas of Springfield, Montpelier, Castleconnell, Mountshannon (Annacotty) and the University of Limerick. Note that other areas between Parteen Weir and Limerick may also be vulnerable to flooding due to local issues
