The Junction Navigation
Here is my top-level page about the Junction Navigation, which later became known as the Ballinamore & Ballyconnell Canal and later still as the Shannon–Erne Waterway.

Here are two short pieces about canals that were never built, which in at least one case was just as well: a canal from Armagh to Moy on the Blackwater and an insane proposal for a canal from Dublin to Lough Neagh.
And here is a memorial [the link is now dead] to what was perhaps the most insane Irish waterway proposal ever. Which, given the competition, is some achievement. If folk want to move boats between the Atlantic and the Erne, or vice versa, why can’t they pay for their own cranage and transport?
