Social and Walk – Sallins


At the end of March we had a very interesting walk from Sallins led by Liam Kenny, local historian, to the ‘Four Pots’ which is the only example in Ireland of a complex circular overflow device 200 years old.  To read more about this unique overflow go online to ‘Helpful Engineer GC Overflow’, it is fascinating.

Later that evening we had our Annual Social organised by Niall O’Dowda.     Forty of us gathered in the warmth of the 13th Lock Pub for a meal and a catch-up with boating friends after a long winter.  © Marie Davis. 





Unfortunately, our ‘Dry Rally’ trip to Belfast to see the Titanic had to be cancelled due to low numbers available to participate.  Hopefully we can reschedule for another time.  © M.Davis
