A walk along the Shannon in O’Brien’s Bridge

We were delighted to see 38 walkers arrive in O’Brien’s Bridge this morning for our ‘Ramblers’ guided walk on the Errinagh Bridge Loop. And the weather could not have been nicer.

We were led by the very knowledgeable Maura Turner, who brought us along the embankment on the Shannon Headrace, taking a slight detour to one of the the old locks on the Killaloe – Limerick canal.

We started our return trip following the old towpath along the River Shannon. Sections of this path have recently been repaired by the local community group.

Arriving back to O’Briens Bridge village, we had a well deserved refreshment stop in B14 coffee shop, offering soup, sandwiches and delicious array of sweet treats.

If you would like to do this walk, it is very well marked – https://www.sportireland.ie/outdoors/walking/trails/obriensbridge-errinagh-bridge

Our next walk will take place on Thursday 23rd February. If you would like to find out more, please text or WhatsApp Arlene on 086 358 6293.
