Description

Stretching from Dublin right through the Midlands and west to the mighty Shannon, the Grand Canal was a stunning feat of engineering in the eighteenth century, vital for Ireland's trade and industry. Over two centuries later, the canal has a new life as a walking and cycling trail. Visitors can step back in time, enjoying the peace and quiet of yesteryear while discovering quirky humpbacked bridges and ivy-covered warehouses, in a landscape far removed from modern pressures. Jo Kerrigan examines the history, life and lore of the waterway over the centuries, while master photographer Richard Mills offers gorgeous images of its elegant locks and bridges, and the wildflowers, animals and birds found along its leafy banks.
