The River Rats Calendar project has been concluded with a public handover of €10,490.12, a truly magnificent final figure and a credit to all involved in producing and selling the item. Some photos of the event can be seen at...iwai forum

The HBA on the Royal trip has come to a successful conclusion in Dublin and the complete story with pictures can be re-traced in our latest news section and is well worth a look over for those planning the trip. The fleet remained intact at Dublin IWAI rally, and various groupings are making their way along the Grand Canal to the Shannon.

The next date on our calendar is the Heritage Day in Daingean on Sunday June 9th and if the inaugural event of last year is anything to go by, then it will be a very worthwhile day out. Do come along whether by canal or road.

On Friday 14th June the Offaly Branch IWAI and Ballycommon Canal Renewal Group are hosting a reception for the HBA at Ballycommon House ( from 9.30pm)

The annual Canal Boat Rally at Shannon harbour on the weekend of 22/23rd June is of course a great event to touch base with old friends and see some canal boats at close quarters.

The major Summer event is HBA@Athlone 2013 and latest updates are on the Home Page.

The latest in the series of Labour History on Irish Waterways, Snippets 9, can be viewed here.

A second booklet in colllaboration with a primary school on the Royal Canal route is about to be published. After the Ballymahon County Longford book we have worked with O'Connell Primary School in Dublin and launch date is Wednesday June 12th at 11am in the school hall. Members are very welcome to this event to support our work in engaging with schoolchildren along our waterway systems. The report from launch day is here.
