    Not a comment but a query. I’m trying to find details of Lacy’s Canal near Mullingar, but so far I’ve found very little in any reference books. As the all-seeing, all-knowing genius that you are, could you help?

  2. Alas: I spent some time on the subject myself and failed utterly to find anything about the canal’s origins, builder or purpose. It’s one of those topics for which I keep my eyes open in case I find it mentioned while I’m looking for something else, but there has been nothing so far.

    I think that the only solution is to spend some time in the library or archives in Mullingar (which I won’t be doing in the immediate future). Good luck with the search; if you find anything, I’d be interested to hear about it.
