Waterways Ireland have reminded users of the Grand Canal that as part of ongoing developments at Shannon Harbour, the provisions of S.I No. 24/1988: Canals Act, 1986 Bye-law (25, 1 (d)) will be applied on all hard edged moorings in the harbour area with effect from 08 May 2010.  This area is deemed to be between 35th Lock and Griffith Bridge. 

This will ensure that there is a clear channel for navigation at all times and will make for easy access to berthage by visiting vessels wishing to avail of the refurbished facilitates.

Vessels should only moor directly onto quay walls and not double or triple berth.  Alternative berthing is available east of Griffith Bridge.

Vessels should only be moored singly on either side of the canal to permit the safe passage of craft.  Bye-law (25, 1 (b) states that sufficient space must remain so that two vessels can pass at the same time.  Berthage is also available on the north bank between 35th and 36th Lock.

Vessels in contravention of this bye-law will be moved off the area as space becomes available. Vessels without a valid permit will also be moved.
