- In the years 1918-1919 there was a great spell of dry weather or drought in Ireland. The crops were very poor for want of rain especially the potatoes. The hay crops were light and there was very little after-grass. Springs, pumps, and rivers went dry and people had to draw water great distances for cattle and household purposes.
In some places they suffered very badly for want of water especially Knockaderry. They had to draw the water three or four miles. Now, there is a reservoir built on the top of a hill near Knockaderry and the water is piped into the village, and Rathkeale is also supplied by it. The farmers also get it piped into a cement trough for their cattle at so much per head.Tras-scríofa ag duine dár meitheal tras-scríbhneoirí deonacha.
