    Public moorings 5day limit. Prone to silting on inside fingers, tidal, half tide due weir. Access from upstream via Abbey river can be challenging. Recommended not to attempt if more than one turbine running upstream at hydro power station. Phone ESB Ardnacrusha dam automated flow number (087) 208 5693 to find out how many turbines are running. 83mWh is roughly equivalent to all 4 turbines running. The abbey river is tidal and can be subject to strong flows during winter or summer periods of excessive rain fall when hydro station in operation. Should be enough air draft clearance for most vessels 3hrs either side of LW Limerick docks (get tide table from Shannon Foynes port company website). Highly recommend newcomers to the limerick navigation phone Pat Lysaght (086) 848 7042 for advice a few days before intended passage up or down stream. Ardnacrusha lock must be booked 48hrs in advance. Sarsfield sea lock also needs to be precooked if heading down the Shannon Estuary to Kilrush or Foynes. Call Waterways Ireland (090) 974 1165 for info. Typically in normal summer conditions power station is not operating and flow can be very gentle on the abbey River coming down stream into Limerick. But in flooding conditions when all four turbines are running flow between Baals bridge and Matthew bridge can be as much as 11kt. In typical summer conditions just before HW limerick flow can be 0kt or even reverse flow of 1kt with incoming tide. Some times incoming tide can be used to mitigate against downstream current once weir has been covered on the ebb tide.
