Protection of Protected Bird Species
Waterways Ireland has been advised that rare and protected birds are present and breeding on Cribby Island, near Mount Shannon and on Church Island adjacent to Portumna Forest Park.
To protect and minimise disturbance to these nesting birds in the area, masters are requested to observe a voluntary exclusion zone by not encroaching within 250m of the islands and to proceed directly passed and without stopping near the islands, between now and August inclusive. In particular masters are requested not to attempt to approach or disembark onto the islands using smaller punts, canoes or kayaks.
Masters should note that deliberate disturbance to nesting birds and their habitat is illegal under the Wildlife Act (1976-2012).
Waterways Ireland thanks its customers for their co-operation in this matter.
Waterways Ireland wishes advise masters and owners of vessels of the current schedule. The lock keeper can be contacted at the following number 087-7972998 only during the hours of operation as shown above when he/she will be in attendance.
Masters are advised to contact the ESB Ardnacrusha hydroelectric power station (00353 (0)87 9970131) 48 hours in advance of commencing their journey to book passage through the locks at Ardnacrusha.
It is advised NOT to undertake a voyage if more than one turbine is operating (20MW), due to the increased velocity of flow in the navigation channel, which can be dangerous. To ascertain automatically in real time how many turbines are running, users can phone 00353 (0)87 6477229.
Waterways Ireland wishes to remind masters and owners of vessels that the winter mooring period finished on the Shannon Navigation, which includes the Shannon- Erne Waterway, on Fri 31 Mar and that vessels may only berth for a period of five consecutive days in any one month in a public harbour, until 1 Nov 2017.
Waterways Ireland wishes to advise masters and owners of vessels that a shoal area has been reported north of Inishcorkish, signage has been erected and masters are further requested to follow the alternative southern route.
Waterways Ireland thanks its customers for their cooperation in this matter.
