Description

Fully updated from an earlier 1992 Edition, Ireland's Royal Canal 1789-2009 describes the overall resotration of the waterway.  The relined channels and reconstructed locks and bridges have transformed this derelict, mainly dry watercourse into a fully navigable canal.  Over 100 images consisting of photographs, engravings, aerial views, posters and maps, document and celebrate this 200 year history, integral to Ireland's past and present landscape, and to the geography of our lives.
