Description

The Grand, Ireland's premier canal - elder sister to the Royal - with its magnificent main line and branches to Ballinasloe, the Barrow Navigation and elsewhere, became a main artery of trade and means of development.  Trade ended with the last Guinness boat departing for Limerick in 1960, and most of the branches were closed to navigation. This book covers the life of the Grand Canal Company rather than the canal.
