It says here
Minister Naughten also announced that Meelick Weir just north of Lough Derg will be removed.
I can’t find anything about this on Mr Naughten’s department’s website and Boxer Moran’s speech doesn’t mention it.
Were it true, getting a boat upstream (or indeed down) past Shannon Grove would become even more exciting. Perhaps it’s time to restore Hamilton’s Lock.
Of course if the weir is removed there will be no point in restoring the walkway.
