Navigation on the Movanagher Canal, part of the Lower Bann system, will be substantially closed to boating traffic from next Monday 20 January for around five week due to essential dredging maintenance works along the navigation channel.

Some passage on the waterway may be available by prior arrangement during weekdays; users should contact 028 70344326 or 078 76032891 to make arrangements.

Passage through canal and locks will be available at weekends as per normal opening hours but users are advised to contact the lock keeper in advance of travel on 028 29540570.

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.
