Precautions during flood conditions

Waterways Ireland wishes to advise all Masters of vessels and water users that the Shannon, Erne, Barrow and Bann rivers are at Winter Flood levels.

Masters of vessels and water users should proceed with additional caution and bear the following in mind when on the water during flood conditions:-

- Air draft is reduced under all bridges and power lines

- Water velocity is significantly increased

- Access to jetties can be difficult as gangways and pontoons are elevated

- Navigation markers, pontoons, jetties may be submerged

Waterways Ireland thanks all vessel owners and operators for their co-operation in relation to this matter.
