PICTURES: Athlone Sub Aqua Club's River Shannon clean up

Last Saturday, the Athlone Sub Aqua Club took the opportunity to clean the river Shannon's bed while its water level is at a record low.

Numerous items were recovered using a 'rubber duck' machine, including trolleys, traffic cones, road signs, ten car tires, four electric heaters and even a car trailer.

Martina and Steven from Beans and Leaves took care of the volunteers on the day with food and water.
