Atmosphere Shot of the Water Section

Clare is a county with close links to water. The concept of River Shannon and Atlantic Ocean combining to turn Clare almost into an island is explored broadly in this section. This water has influenced the settlement of the county and the relationship between people and the environment. Throughout time water has been used by Clare people for travel, transport, food, pleasure, and sacred purposes.
