We lock down at Balligrane. The cut below is a bit silted but we get no problems.
Again we have some current for a short part but after, the water surface is like a mirror, only some ripples and whirls indicate rocks underwater.
Clashganna weir welcomes us with some kayakers on it. We have a longer break above the lock and walk around.
Willi also walks up the hill and take some photos from there. The kayakers have a lunch break at the lock before going downstream.
The lockkeeper arrives and shakes his head as well as the kayakers had done when discovering a fire place close to the lock and a lot of rubbish around and partly burned in it. “They should pay a lot of money for burning the plastic rubbish there,” said one kayaker. The lockkeeper leaves but is quickly back with bags, tools, soil and seed. He collects litter (also blankets and clothes), removes ash and sows new grass.
