Thursday 14/04/2011 Borris - Balligrane - Clashganna - Lower Tinnahinch
Motto of the day: Adventure on the Barrow and relaxing at the tiller
The day starts cloudy and calm. Patrick Gill, the lockkeeper, arrives for a painting job at the lock. We have some conversation on the navigation and Ireland in these times. He locks us through after a while.
We are back on the river with a strong current at this point but the river slows down after a short part. We pass a wreck of a wooden boat. We are also slowing down and enjoy the beautiful river valley to Balligrane weir and lock.
Here we have a break with a view to the weir. A few blue spells arrive.
