I often wonder why they let the excess water run away then impose a hosepipe ban shortly after

I'd say its because there is only so much water the reservoirs can hold.

That is why, you'd build hydro electric plants and generate power from the excess.

In Ireland?
Which villages will agree to be flooded?
Which rivers have enough of a flow and deep enough a valley?

There was a marine engineer on the late late over a decade ago and he said Ireland has at least 50 large natural land areas that'd suit a hydro plant set up near the coasts and ideal for such a set up.

There's a huge valley 29 km outside cork city and north of Inniscarra Dam. You'd easily fit a few lakes in it, it has natural mountain walls about 4-5 km around it and would make an ideal hydro/storage area. It can't be farmed, because of the steep hills and sheep wear mountaineering gear when grazing on it.

We are probably a bit too small for Hydro but, surely Wave energy must be looked at as we're constantly getting batered by storms..

We are being flooded, with water and surely we can use wind to pump it to high ground for storage?
