the lock keeper's cottage, Baile na Greine lock, the Barrow Navigation, County Carlow, Ireland. by 

AF Nikkor 35-70mm 1:2.8D

The Barrow canal was used commercially right up to the late 1960’s, transporting grain North to Dublin to make Guinness, which was then transported south to New Ross for export by sea.
The canal is used for leisure craft now and although the locks are all functional, some of the lock keepers cottages are now derelict as here at Baile na Greine lock.

    Hi Andrew
    Very good capture, it is a pitty the old houses are not kept in good order as they look very old, it seems a lot of people do travel the waterways.
