About 8. The Canal Stores

8. The Canal Stores in Clones, Co. Monaghan.

The Canal Stores
The Ulster Canal connected Belfast via Lough Neagh with the Shannon-Erne Waterway using the Ballyconnell Canal.

It was opened into Lough Erne in 1842 and closed finally in 1931. It was originally planned as an important section of a great waterway which was to cross Ireland from east to west, from Belfast to Limerick. A poor water supply, inappropriately sized locks and the arrival of rail and road transport meant that the anticipated traffic failed to develop.
