We follow the sign from the River Shannon on to the Grand Canal.
As soon as we turn off the River Shannon, it immediately feels like a canal.
Above the lock there are boats lining the towpath.
We liked the anchors on the approach to lock 35.
There is little room to moor at Shannon Harbour as there are a lot of boats there.
It was nice to see the signs of the canals heritage, with the horse lines on the bridges.
Lock 33 is a staircase lock, but it looked very strange on our approach, as both lock chambers are empty
Judges Bridge, soon after lock 33, is an example of one of the attractive bridges on this canal.
Apparently, at one time, there used to be a great many parties at this house, which was owned by a rich Englishman. Those times are long gone here!
We were lucky to find this charming mooring for The Puzzler, above Noggus Bridge. It seems a long time since we left Clonmacnoise this morning!
