Masters and users of the Shannon Navigation are advised that a Smart Card system will be introduced at all locks on the navigation from 01 July 2018.

As Afloat.ie reported in March, Waterways Ireland says Masters of vessels will be able to use a Smart Card or pay in cash until 01 September 2018.

From 01 September 2018 payment will be by Smart Card only.

Where bridge lifting is required at Tarmonbarry and Rooskey, a combined toll payment for the lock and bridge will be taken at the Lock.

The cost of the lock passage on the Shannon will cost two units from the smart card. The cost of the lock passage on the Lower Bann will cost 1 unit. The lock passage on the Shannon-Erne Waterway will remain at 1 unit. The 10 unit card costs €6.35/£5.55 and the 20 unit card costs €12.70/£11.10.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
