Farms hit hard by flooding along Shannon Callows

Galway Bay fm newsroom – It’s claimed that up to 10,000 bales worth of hay and silage have been lost due to flooding on farms along the Shannon Callows.

Some farmers are now calling for compensation, believing state bodies are responsible for not correctly managing the river.

It comes as July just gone was the wettest on record.

Barry Murphy of the Irish Farmers Journal says some farms in the West have been badly affected.
