The vertical leaves in front are those of bulrushes.

This plant is growing in 24 inches of water.

I don't know what it is, though.

Thanks very much for a speedy reply, GPI.

I did a web search for it and my goodness, they certainly don't like it in America where it's regarded as highly invasive.

Here's an Irish link to it. http://www.wildflowersofireland.net/plant_detail.php?id_flower=153&wildflower=Loosestrife%20Purple
