> Here is an interesting site by the Irish Office of

> Walls!) for flood maps for
> Ireland. I’m not all wet in pointing out that by
> exploring this resource you
> may learn a bit more of the area your ancestors
> lived and flooding may have
> been another reason folks left an area.

> comes up, there is a zoom
> feature and you can add other choices. Not every
> area has a flood history.
> For those that do (i.e. Co Tipperary, Curragunneen)
> even more information
> can be found. Just play around on the site and good
> luck. Still searching
