Description

Strabane – Ballymagorry Canal, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom

The Strabane Canal is a short (four mile) canal in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. It connected the market town of Strabane to the navigable River Foyle and thence to the port of Londonderry on the north coast of Ireland. The historic canal initially brought considerable prosperity to Strabane and to the neighbouring town of Lifford in Co Donegal during the first quarter of the 19th century and the two towns became flourishing markets for agricultural produce. The canal opened in 1796 and closed in 1962.

In June 2006 the Strabane Lifford Development Commission awarded a £1.3m cross-border waterways restoration contract to Doran Consulting of Belfast. The project was launched by President of Ireland, Mary McAleese, in Lifford and involves the restoration of 2.4 km (1.5 mi) of canal and two locks to working order
