WAR STEAMERS ON THE IRISH LAKE
S
It is stated by an Irish paper that government have it in contemplation to place war steam boats upon all the large lakes in Ireland. A number are now being erected in Liverpool for this purpose and one is expected upon Lough Corrib early in spring. This will be the first step towards the navigation and other improvements of the lake, and thus open an immediate communication between Galway and the surrounding districts of Headford, Cong, Ballinrobe, Westport – in fact, the entire shores along this extensive and beautiful lake.
