From North Tipp to South Tipp - the long way around

Today, Sunday August 7th, the HBA's Three Sisters' Fleet arrived in Carrick-on-Suir, on a journey for some that started in Clare and North Tipperary.

Led by 72M and 68M, the fleet travelled from Arthurstown, on the Suir Estuary, via Cheekpoint and Waterford to Fiddown, where they were met by Jim Power of Carrick Boat Club and the Three Michaels on board the impressive Carrick Rescue Boat, who escorted them to Carrick.

At the Mooring Jetties, the crews were welcomed by Councillor Patsy Fitzgerald, Mayor of Carrick, local dignitaries, boaters and members of the press. Carrick-on-Suir is the furthest stop on the HBA’s voyage to celebrate the 220th anniversary of the Barrow Navigation, which linked the Nore and Suir with the Grand Canal and the River Shannon.

All crews are looking forward to working with the local communities over the next week or so in promoting the boating amenities on the River Suir.
