Tralee Ship Canal

Tralee Ship Canal, about 2 km long, links the town of Tralee, in County Kerry, to the sea. It might be the most westerly canal in Europe (query Belmullet).

The canal was restored recently, courtesy of the taxpayer, but seems to be little used. It has a sea lock (but no other locks) and a swivel bridge. Here are some photos taken on a very wet and windy day.
