FIRE WARNING - What ?

I just had to share this!

Fire warning issued for rural areas.

at Saturday 4th April 2015 - 07.59 AM



A warning has been issued by the Fire Service and Bord na Mona on the risk of fires in the countryside this weekend.

The organisations said the chance of fire is much greater at Bank Holiday weekends as there are more people enjoying outdoor activities.

Bord na Mona is urging people not to light fires outdoors and to dispose of cigarettes in a safe way.

It is not as if we have had a hot dry winter followed by a rainless Spring. Yesterday I noticed ponding on the sides of the roads as water from the fields was spilling out on to the highways.

The bogs too must be inundated, peat is known for water retention and therefore I can only assume that the moron who issued the publication of this notice has yet to go out and walk in the countryside.

  1. Here the ground is so wet that the farmer can't go on it with his tractor. He is busy clearing up sticks that have been brought down by gales over the winter. He is putting them into piles so that when (if ever) it dries up then he can collect them with tractor and trailer.

  2. The weather forecast one day was for a heat wave this weekend and the next day it said there would be blizzards. So that's a prospective record snowy heat wave to look forward to. Obviously that is where your fire service was coming from! X
