River Barrow
The Barrow (Irish: An Bhearú) is a river in Ireland. It is one of The Three Sisters; the other two being the River Suir and the River Nore. The Barrow is the longest of the three rivers, and at 192 km, the second-longest river in Ireland, behind the River Shannon.
The source of the River Barrow is at Glenbarrow in the Slieve Bloom Mountains in County Laois.
Among the towns that the River Barrow passes through on its way to the sea beyond Waterford are Portarlington, Monasterevin, Athy, Carlow/Graiguecullen, Muine Bheag (Bagenalstown), Graiguenamanagh and New Ross.
The river forms a natural border between, on its right bank, counties Kilkenny and Waterford and, on its left bank, counties Carlow and Wexford. Its mouth is Waterford Harbour.
