Waterways Ireland is pleased to announce the creation of a non–motorised ‘safe play’ zone at Castle Archdale Country Park on Lower Lough Erne.
The new zone will be located between the existing caravan park and Davy’s Island and will be delineated with floating buoys. A similar scheme is currently in operation at Muckross Bay, Kesh.
In temporarily closing off a section of the navigation to motorised craft, Waterways Ireland is exercising its powers under the Lough Erne (Navigation) Bye–laws (Northern Ireland) 1978 as amended by The Lough Erne (Navigation) (Amendment) Bye–laws (Northern Ireland) 1986. The aim of the proposal is to improve safety in the area, which has become increasingly popular with all types of waterway enthusiasts in recent years.
