MARINE NOTICE, No. 55 of 2014
Lough Derg- Illaunmore
Waterways Ireland has received a report that there is a 2 inch (50mm) steel bar sticking out of the water by about 4 inches (100mm), approximately two thirds of the way along a direct line between the eastern end of “Yellow Island” (the largest island on the northern side of Illaunmore) and Curraghmore Point (the nearest point of land to the north of Illanunmore).
This location appears to be in an area marked unsuitable for navigation, however, until such time as the report can be verified; masters are requested to keep a sharp look-out for this hazard when navigating in the vicinity of Illaunmore.
Charles Lawn, Inspector of Navigation, 30 May 2014
