Semper aliquid …

… novi Africam adferre, as my old grandmother used to say.

Waterways Ireland’s Marine Notice 45/2011 says:

[…] there will be restrictions on boat movements on Level C5 of the Grand Canal Circular Line between Leeson Street Bridge and Charlemont Bridge, Dublin over the next two weeks.

This is the first time I have seen an official name of any kind, much less an alphanumeric designation, applied to Irish canal levels (pounds). Is this a New Thing? And what are the names of the other levels, on the Grand and elsewhere?

I do hope the new naming of parts works better than this.
