We've had some further information from the Barrow. John Sexton writes
===begins=====

Most things are in great order in spite of normal Summer levels. Boats with a draft of more than 24in may touch the bottom cill in Bagenalstown, I draw 24in & had to let a little water in to float me over the cill into & out of  the lock. By all accounts the fishing is good this year on the Barrow, also Leighlinbridge, Bagenalstown & Goresbridge are all very clean & tidy & welcoming, all very encouraging. The pool in Bagenalstown is great, right alongside the river, heated, openair, clean, toilets & hot showers & changing rooms all spotless, excellent for anyone reluctant to swim in the river.

And Declan Timmons reports from around Carlow:
>1. The Boat club is undergoing renovations so there is only half the mooring space available there. I am told the work will take at least two months and mooring there will be restricted during this time.
>2. There are mooring bollards available at Graigeucullen park ( almost directly across from the boat club ) however there is a lot of silting at the head of the island there and the moorings should be approached with caution.
>3. There are obstructions in the river:-
> Below the lock at Carlow, two large concrete bollards.
> Below Clogrennan Lock, a submerged fishing boat, close to the island side approx 10 metres from the lock.>
>4. Fishing and other boats are being moored for long periods at the new jetties above and below locks along the navigation. I have had complaints from customers who could not get access to the jetties to disembark for the lock.
