Waterways Ireland’s jetties have reopened at Clonmacnoise, Shannonbridge, Shannon Harbour and Banagher on the Shannon Navigation following the lifting of coronavirus restrictions on counties Laois and Offaly.
Waterways Ireland said it strongly encourages people to strictly observe social distancing measures throughout its network of inland waterways.
“We are asking our users not to congregate, to keep moving, and allow ample space for others to pass in accordance with social distancing protocols,” it added.
Elsewhere, weed cutting operations are under way at Portna and Movanagher on the Lower Bann from today, Monday 24 to Friday 28 August.
Boaters in these areas are advised to approach with caution, reduce speed and follow any instructions or signage.
On Lough Derg, water users are advised to proceed with caution in the vicinity of Goat’s Road as the green E Buoy is currently off station at Bellvue Eoint.
And the public mooring at Leitrim village has been closed for a Garda investigation into a tragic incident in the early hours of Sunday 23 August.
Alternate moorings are available below the bridge in Leitrim village and at Lock 16 on the Shannon-Erne Waterway.
