On this day - 11th January 1988

Have a look at this fantastic image of Ballybrannigan Harbour on the Royal Canal in Co Longford. This photo was taken from Chaigneau Bridge in 1988 by Ian Bath prior to restoration and the reopening of the Royal Canal.

The second image was taken 26 years later... What a difference!
