Threat to river Suir fishlife

The River Suir water quality is tested once a month

From a meeting of Thurles Templemore Municipal District Council 

Fianna Fail Cllr Sean Ryan has questioned if the River Suir water has been sampled and analysed for quality in recent times as there appears to be a lot of green algae in it.

Speaking at a meeting of the Thurles Templemore Municipal District Council this week,  Cllr Ryan said that there were concerns over the appearance of the river.
