It is with great regret that we have to announce  the death of B J Goggin.

Brian was a member of IWAI for many years and Editor of Inland Waterways News in the early part of the century.

He was a waterways historian of some note and his website https://irishwaterwayshistory.com/ contains a wealth of information about our waterways.

His family have posted a lovely tribute to him on the website and also some details of how his life can be celebrated and remembered.

Many people will have met him on the waterways over the years, in the early days on their sailing boat “Pynta Pleyne”, later in their cruiser “Carian”

and in more recent years in their tug-barge “Knocknagow”.

To his wife Anne, his children Carolan and Ian and all their family we extend our deepest sympathies.

May he rest in peace.
