Join the ex-Grand Canal Company motor-barge 68M on its trip from Killaloe to Limerick Docks, carrying barrels of stout for Dolan’s Pub. The trip marked two occasions: Arthur’s Day, the annual Guinness marketing opportunity, and the fiftieth anniversary of the last commercial cargo on the Grand Canal and the Shannon, which was a shipment of stout to Limerick.
This page provides a slide-show of 300 photos taken from 68M on its journey. If you can’t make the trip in person, do it this way.
Note that the page takes some time to load. And, even clicking through pretty fast, the show is likely to take at least ten minutes.
