Athy Boat Trips

Passengers aboard a boat trip on river Barrow

Athy Boat Trip

We’d a fantastic trip today as we headed up river to Athy in county Kildare. On route we took in the river Barrow’s ‘Haunted lock’ at Bestfield, the beautiful mill at Levitstown and spotted loads of wild life including Peregrine Falcons at Maganey. It took us approximately 4hrs, including a stop off for a quick break and stretch of the legs. Here as some great pic’s sent into us from John Fagan.

Source of the River Nore

Source of the River Nore

The river Nore rises in the Devils Bit mountain in County Tipperary. However, some argue over the exact location of the true source with the two main suggestions being at Gorteenashingaun or Benduff. Going on local knowledge, it is suggested that Gorteenashingaun it the start of the Nore. This is a little piece about our adventure tracing the Nore’s source.
