  1. At the risk of being cynical,you could put most news articles of the 21st Century relating to the Ulster Canal under this heading also!

  2. Is there a navigable water route, at present, from lough Neagh to Dublin?

  3. The Lower Bann is navigable from Lough Neagh north to the sea, near Coleraine; two right turns will bring you to the Irish Sea; head south for Dublin. Waterways Ireland runs the Lower Bann as far as Coleraine; its page is here. bjg
