Clashganna weir welcomes us with some kayakers on it. We have a longer break above the lock and walk around.

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.
