The glory that was Greese

The River Greese is a tributary of the River Barrow, joining it below Maganey Lock. The photo is taken from the road on the west bank of the Barrow.

You can locate it on the OSI map by zooming out from here; the extract below shows the confluence.

Waterways Ireland and the cuts …

WI’s tree-cutting on the Barrow.

Dry docks

I’m starting a new section on Irish inland waterways dry docks. The thing is, I have photos of very few of them, and even my list of docks is almost certainly incomplete. So this page has photos of a few of the docks, but I’m hoping readers will be able to help with lots more.

The abandoned line of the Grand Canal to James’s St Harbour

I have put up four pages covering the Main Line of the Irish Grand Canal from Suir Road to the original terminus at Grand Canal Harbour, James’s Street. This account covers Guinness and Dublin’s water supply as well as the line of the canal. There are some photos of trams and of the 1′ 10″ gauge Guinness locomotives for Steam Men. Page 1 of 4 is here.
