(An extract from Memories of the Shannon in Light Reading for Short Journeys)"My first glimpse of the Shannon was on a mid-winter morning with frost on the fields. I could scarcely believe my eyes, this huge river on my doorstep, a vast playground promising adventure and excitement. I raced down the towpath to the lock gates, clambered on the weir, watched the water tumble through the slices on to the stones below. All this was mine."
