The Limerick Flood of 2014 is the missing link between the ‘real-life’ experience of the people affected by climate change and the ‘deskbound’ reality in which plans and administrative considerations are formulated. The text captures well the practicalities of bottom-up needs in a hazardous situation and the failure of democratic and administrative systems to provide for the safety of citizens. The tale rests upon an acute dissection of the underlying causes. A book like this is essential in documenting the way in which ‘the disconnect’ manifests itself.
