M0658 : Ferry Bridge, Cloghbrack

taken 8 years ago, 5 km from Finny, Ireland

Ferry Bridge, Cloghbrack
Ferry Bridge, Cloghbrack
For all practicable purposes, Upper Mask Bay can be considered as a lough separate from Lough Mask. Seven kilometres long and a little over one kilometre wide, it narrows to a channel only 15 metres wide where it enters the main body of Lough Mask, and there is a strong current through the channel.

This shows the Ferry bridge at the lower end of the "bay" carrying the R300, no doubt replacing an earlier ferry. Looking north-west from County Galway into County Mayo; the "bay" is to the left.
