"Occasional freakish summer storms are peculiar to Lough Derg. Pilgrims often alighting at the shore on a tranquil summer day are often surprised at the unexpected commotion of the deeps and the dark yeasty appearance of the water.The pilgrimage season of 1918 was long remembered for its storms. On Sunday, June 9th, pilgrims arriving on the shore were confronted with an awesome spectacle, the lake being like a boiling cauldron of spouting water."
