the problem with leaving the ulster canal as a narrow waterway is that it will prevent interaction between the shannon and loch neagh. I don’t think the bridges or viaducts will have to go. the locks can be bypassed. the real shame is the water supply. could a windmill or ram pump not be set up to pump from the blackwater–natural energy? only 60% of the canal bed remains. If not used quickly it will disappear. there is no room for a ‘new’ bed along the route except around the existing locks. What is there should be used, particularly the middle of Monaghan town!
