Om Limerick Flood of 2014
The Limerick Flood of 2014 was prepared by a coastal and river regeneration specialist already engaged with the people affected. This is his story as well as theirs - and he proves himself a writer with a talent for description and explanation. The author conducts a riveting conversation with his readers in which he takes them from a moving glimpse in to the history of King's Island in Limerick, through gripping, first-hand experiences of the flood, and then into evidence of disorganisation and failures in the official sphere. Next, the author introduces his readers to a higher-level examination of the reasons why things happened than we might usually find, which is genuinely fascinating and full of insight. Finally, he gives us a plan of action for approaching the question of our own vulnerability, as well as challenging social scientists to get more involved in the threat posed by climate change. The Limerick Flood of 2014 successfully converts Ireland's own experience of this type of disaster into a narrative that can be compared with similar events across the world.
