Is this canal still in use? Locks still operating? What is/was the traffic on the canal? These waterways fascinate me.

many thanks RJ , Jim , Sandy and Mills for all the nice comments

I take lots of shots around two different canals in the different seasons
there are beautiful walks alongside them
one canal is approx 10 mile away
this one here is roughly 6 mile away (same canal but nearer) and named the Grand Canal

it goes right through Dublin that way >
and going this way < travels onwards towards the beautiful wide Shannon river .
http://www.irishtouris​m.com/cruise_section/i​ndex.htm (external link)

it once was very busy used for industry
today it is used for recreational purposes mostly,
fishing boating and leisure
http://www.waterwaysir​eland.org/ (external link)

" The Grand canal is one if Ireland's greatest engineering achievements.
in the 18th century is was essential for industry.
today it is just as important for leisure.
constructed in bogland along a good portion of it's length the canal was a challenging construction and today is a unique example of it's kind in the world

the first boat travelled the entire length of the canal in 1804 from Shannon harbour in Offaly to Dublin.

Nowadays both privately owned and hire boats move freely along it's length, gliding serenely under bridges, through locks and past glorious buildings, open bogland and rural landscapes

from Dublin city to the wide open spaces in the midlands of Ireland the grand Canal remains a peaceful stretch of water, easily accessible, and enjoyed by walkers, boaters and anglers alike

the Main Line stretches for 131km from Dublin in the east to Shannon Harbour in the west with 43 locks

the Barrow Line runs south from the summit level at Lowtown, County Kildare
to join the river barrow in Athy, a distance of 45km with 9 locks

The Naas branch (shown here ) is navigable to Naas Harbour, a distance of 4km with 5 locks "

the water from the canal was sometimes used by guinness at the 8th lock to wash machinery.
it could be still but I think it was found to be too soft

today the water is used by the city council (dublin) for washing trains and other vehicles

I took a few other pictures that same day as the shot above
the colours will be slightly different

sorry

the red X is showing on Pbase

one shot is of the very old door beside this lock in the picture
the lock shown in the picture above is further up the canal

(DUPLICATE IMAGE)
