62a. Killaloe and the River Shannon
The small town of Killaloe is situated on the picturesque banks of the River Shannon. The name Killaloe is derived from its Gaelic name of Cill Dalua (or Cill-du-lua, 'the church of Dalua'). It is named after St Molua, a 6th century contemporary of St Brendan.
St Flannan's Cathedral and the town of Killaloe set on the broad River Shannon.
The street by the Cathedral is very busy!
Even on a grey day the tourist boats still takes its well wrapped up tourists for a 'pleasure' cruise!

An appropriate sculpture of a salmon.
An old canal barge, no doubt converted for modern comforts, tied up on the quayside by the Cathedral.
Part of the old canal system and docks at Killaloe.
The Wooden Spoon, just round the corner from the Cathedral, was a great place to eat and a cute little garden area to eat in at the back!
