#Erne – As a result of fast river flow On the Erne system at Enniskillen, Portora Lock is presently closed. Also, a defective sluice gate on the weir means there are fast flow rates in the vicinity of the lock. Waterways Ireland has issued a warning to Masters to proceed with caution if navigating in the vicinity of the lock.

We've got a favour to ask
