Tralee Canal, County Kerry, photos /

Photos of the Tralee Ship Canal and environs, in County Kerry, South West Ireland.

Tralee is the county town of County Kerry, in the south-west of Ireland. The town is situated at the neck of the Dingle Peninsula, and is the largest town in the county.

The Tralee Canal was built as a ship canal to bring trade to Tralee, around 1830. It is now no longer used for large boats, but remains a valued amenity, providing a scenic walk to the coast for local people.

I frequently walk by the canal and have taken several photos of the canal and environs, at different times and in different lighting conditions.

The canal also is noted for having been the regular port of the Jeanie Johnston, a tall ship that was used to transport emigrants to America between 1848 qnd 1855. See my blog post on: http://helenebrennan.wordpress.com/2014/05/25/tralee-ship-canal-the-human-story/

Most of these photos are available as limited edition prints only. Others are available in a variety of sizes. Please use the contact link above or the enquire button next to the image (when in large view), for more details.
