Clare County Launches Severe Winter Weather Guide

Clare County Council has launched an online advice and information guide to raise awareness of the importance of preparing for severe weather during winter. The ‘Be Winter-Ready’ guide has been published on the Council website,, and is part of a Government initiative launched in November.

The guide features flooding advice, tips on how to reduce the risk of water leakages and shortages during freezing weather, advice on clearing snow, safety tips for driving in snow and ice, and information for the farming community, as well as a range of other public health and safety advice.

In recent years, County Clare has experienced a number of severe weather episodes including flooding in November 2009, and prolonged cold periods in December 2009 and December 2010.
