The Ulster Canal – Upper Lough Erne to Clones is located in County Fermanagh, County Monaghan and County Cavan in Ireland and N. Ireland. From Upper Lough Erne to Clones the navigation begins at Quivvy Lough in County Fermanagh and then travels up the River Finn to Gortnacarrow, travelling along the County Cavan boundary at Castle Saunderson. From Gortnacarrow the canal travels north east to Clones, crossing the international border between Northern Ireland (County Fermanagh) and Ireland (County Monaghan) three times. The proposed navigation will be approximately 14km in total, with 5.5kms of river navigation from Quivvy Lough to Gortnacarrow and 8.5kms of canal from Gortnacarrow to a 36 birth marina at Clones. Over this section of canal there are 14 bridges that will have to be replaced, redesigned or restored.
