Episode Nine: ‘And a River Runs Through it’

Water is not just essential for our health and quality of life, but communities all over Ireland rely on the ecosystem services provided by our rivers and streams. The Duhallow community on the Blackwater River understand that the river itself is the lifeblood of their community.

Their way of life relies on the health of the river and they have taken extraordinary steps to protect this river catchment. They know that the economy and livelihoods of this community rely on the water that runs through its heart.

Anja Murray will look at the Blackwater River as a microcosm of many of Ireland’s water catchments and explore some of the issues affecting rivers and communities throughout the country. She will follow the water from source to sea, looking at the impacts on the river and the people that rely on it.
