As November is the month for our AGM could we thank anyone who has contributed to the website in the last twelve months, entered into discussion on the members forum or helped in any way in keeping us in the public eye.

A "Maritime Heritage Gathering" event was held at the Maritime Museum in Dun Laoghaire on 29th/30th October and a good attendance produced some valuable ideas. A report can be found here.

Definitely worth a look at is an exhibition of art from the Design Tower called "Waterland" which runs for the month of November in the Waterways Ireland Visitors Centre in Grand Canal Dock, Dublin.

If in Dun Laoghaire drop into the Shackelton Endurance Exhibition at the Ferry Terminal Building ( www.shackletonexhibition.com ) and of course the National Maritime Museum on Haigh Terrace ( www.mariner.ie )

The latest in the series of Labour History on Irish Waterways can be read in the "Memories" section.


Alison Alderton from Dutch Barge Lily has written an article for Towpath Tim on the Kilbeggan Branch which is worth reading.
