Turloughs are an integral and characteristic part of the Irish landscape and as such almost form part of our cultural identity. There has long been curiosity as to how turloughs ‘work’ hydrologically and ecologically and there has been an engagement in sporadic research and investigation over many years. It has been the advent of the Water Framework Directive, in particular, that has now focused attention on precisely how they function and to what degree they are susceptible to environmental impact. Thus, this desk study has drawn on many people’s work in an attempt to synthesize a form of classification or typology.
