Hi All,

Does anyone know if the water levels in Banagher have lowered? i was down last weekend the water was only an inch below the harbor wall and the flow was very fast. Was anyone in Banagher over the weekend? Has it started to subside?

Thanks,

Brian

Hi Brian, can't speak to levels at Banagher, but I brought a barge up from Athlone to Leitrim on Saturday and the flow was still considerable above Lanesborough. At the bridge and on the narrower sections I'd estimate we were pushing against about 3-4 knots. Constant attention required.
Regards,
Phil.

See [waterlevel.ie]

Levels on Derg have dropped a lot - enough for us to bring boats back to LDYC.
