Hello Andy, The Shannon Erne is open as far as Keshkerrigan at the minute. Only lock 15 appears to be out of action. We came through it just this week past.

Am I right in thinking that Lock 15 is the one opposite Riversdale barges?

Tom,

L15 is Tirmactiernan. The second one up from the western end a few km from
Leitrim.
Riversdale is at Ballinamore.

Thanks Colin,

I'll be passing it on Sunday morning and will have a look at progress. I want to take Ida up the SEW to Riversdale for haul out. After 2 years in the water its time for anode inspection and re-blackening.
