Smoke billowing over the mountains again this evening
Less than 24 hours after the serious fire in the Slieve Bloom mountains was extinguished, another major fire has erupted this evening.
A large plume of smoke can be seen rising above the mountain in the general direction of Clonaslee. The smoke is visible from Killeigh to Tullamore and all the way to Kilcormac.
More details as we get them....
