Whew! I took a flier on that one as I don't recognise the location where Muirsín took the photo - I've seen it further back up towards the Mask alright.
But the Cong Canal was one of the great white elephants - a modern equivalent would be putting in a coaxial cable network and discovering that fibre optics (or adsl?) can do the job much better so it's not worth turning it on - or maybe the Iridium mobile phone satellite network that went bust recently? A huge investment, lovely cut limestone, years and years of work and just left sitting there.
