Wood Island

Wood Island is located on St. John’s Lough on the Shannon-Erne waterway outside Ballinamore, writes Martin Branagan.

St. John’s Lough is a shallow freshwater lake 4 kilometres west of Ballinamore,[2] covering a surface area somewhere between 1.46 km2

Saint John’s Lough extends from Ballyduff Bridge in the north-east, before dividing into three broad reaches separated by narrow passes, or straits.

The “Derrymacoffin Pass” connects the Ballinamore canal and northern lake portion to the central John’s lough, and the “Muckross Pass” connects the central lough to the southern lough.

Martin Branagan is a co-founder of and is passionate about promoting Leitrim as a tourist destination. Under the LoveLeitrim banner, Martin is touring the county in search of its hidden gems.

A Dubliner by birth and Leitrim resident by choice, Martin can be contacted on +353 (0)86 173 8417 for all advertising queries.
