BARROW CANAL

The Barrow branch of the Grand Canal runs parallel to the River Barrow and provides good sport. The canal beside the angling centre of Vicarstown has Bream and Rudd. Further down towards Athy, there are some Tench to 6 lbs (2.7 kg). The canal joins with the River Barrow in Athy town.

Special note: The River Barrow is a mixed fishery with Salmon and Trout. Anglers should note the game fishing stretches and observe local club regulations.

Athy

Athy, on the River Barrow, is situated about 12 miles (10 kin) north of Carlow on the Dublin-Kilkenny road. It is south of Monasterevan and Vicarstown. The Barrow branch of the Grand Canal joins the river at the town. Bream feed mid April to October and Rudd give good sport during summer months. Tench in the canal also provide good sport in the summer. There are some good Perch in the river. More about fishing at Athy
