Two new navigational aids installed on Lough Ree

Two new navigational aids have been installed on Lough Ree ahead of the start of the new boating and fishing season.

Waterways Ireland has confirmed that a red conical has been installed on the North side of Hare Island, while a green conical has been installed on the West side of Fat Head Island.

It’s hoped that the buoys can help people enjoying the waters in Lough Ree and to navigate more safely, with an increase in boats and cruisers expected in the coming weeks.
