Event Description

The Turf Barge on the Royal Canal by Erskine Nicol

Will you join us on Saturday for a paintout on the Royal Canal.  We meet at 11 am in Fureys of Moyvalley.

In 1755 building was started to connect Dublin with the Shannon. The canal was fully operational by 1804. 

 In December 1796 the first passengers were ferried between Dublin and Kilcock at a cost of 1/1 (one shilling and a penny) which was considerably cheaper than the stagecoach. 

However the introduction of the railway line and then an improved road system in 20th century sounded the death knell of the canal.  It was officially closed in 1961.  But in the 1970’s work began to develop the canal as a public amenity.

 So let us enjoy it on Saturday!

Take M4 to Junction 9 towards Edenderry/Enfield.  Then R402 and R148.  Fureys is on right.
