Waterways Ireland carried out the redevelopment project which includes a new Clones Marina, 1km of restored canal and a 1.5km walk on the 180-year-old Ulster Canal route.

Taoiseach Simon Harris along with other Irish government ministers and representatives from Waterways Ireland also attended the official opening ceremony in Clones today.

Speaking at the official opening, new minister Pam Cameron said:

The restoration of the Ulster Canal is an iconic project and is an example of how we can work together across both jurisdictions in a very practical way to deliver initiatives that will ultimately benefit us all.

As neighbors and governments, we all want to deliver better outcomes for people, which is why projects such as the restoration of the Ulster Canal are important.

Infrastructure Minister John ODowd MLA said:

I am delighted to be here to mark the completion of work on Phase 2 of the Ulster Canal restoration. This project brings together communities, north and south, offering opportunities for people young and old to explore our outdoor environment and experience something new.

I would like to congratulate Waterways Ireland, the engineers, contractors and all those involved in delivering this complex project.

Notes to editors:

1. Waterways Ireland is currently progressing the restoration of 13.5 kilometers of the Ulster Canal in 3 phases.

2. Phase 1 was completed in October 2019 and the navigation channel from Upper Lough Erne to Castle Saunderson is now open for navigation. This work consisted of opening approximately 2.5 kilometers of new navigation at a cost of 3.2 million and was achieved from the proceeds of the sale of a property and from Waterways Irelands Capital Reserves.

3. Phase 2 provides navigation from Clones to Clonfad and includes:

  • New 40 berth marina (water park) in Clones
  • Sustainable water source
  • 2 new access bridges
  • About 1 km of new canal with towpaths and walking paths
  • Convenience area with parking.

4. Phase 3 of the restoration will link 10km between Castle Saunderson and Clonfad and connect the town of Clones by navigable waterways to the Erne System and further to the wider Shannon-Erne waterway network, Shannon Navigation , Royal and Grand Canals towards Dublin and further south along the Barrow Line and the Barrow Navigation.
