The Shannon River did not reach its peak (top)during the night, and hundreds of homes survived being flooded as community, emergency services, Irish Red Cross and local council teams worked through the night to keep the rising waters at bay. However the river did burst its banks at The Strand (above), turning parts of the town into a Little Venice lookalike.
