Randomly Vanishing Lake Loughareema

283

Loughareema is so-called Vanishing Lake. It is located a few miles from the seaside town of Ballycastle in Ireland. it is well known for it’s “vanishing” ability, so a passerby who is not aware of the lake and its disappearing act would never even know it existed in the first place.

The lake sits on a leaky chalk-bed with a “plug hole” that often becomes jammed with peat causing the Loughareema depression to fill, especially during heavy rain. When the plug clears, the lake drains rapidly underground.
