New book on waterways
Lurgan man Brian Cassells has penned a new book to celebrate the 60th birthday of the Inland Waterways Association of Ireland (IWAI) and the Waterways of Ireland.
Their first meeting in 1954 attracted some 200 like minded people who had the foresight to come together with the shared aims of promoting traffic on the rivers and canals, opposing any obstructions and campaianging for the conservation and preservation of a working navigation.
Brian is a past president of the IWAI and a sitting member of its National Executive. His book is available from the IWAI website at http://shop.iwai.ie and local bookshops.
