Anyone that knows the Ballinahinch Lake locality of Connemara in the West of Ireland knows that the area is a treasure trove of beauty. This chart originated In the mid 1800’s. The chart was then revised in 2011 under the expert eye of Captain Trevor Northage who was tasked with surveying the lakes in this area to update the British Admiralty charts. The captain’s findings of his surveys have been much documented, particularly a 4,500 year old Viking log boat from Lough Corrib.
This area of Conemara is home to a multitude of lakes of varying sizes. Ballinahinch Lake is one of the larger lakes and lies between Recess and Clifden, Co. Galway. Visible on the chart is the beautiful Ballinahinch Castle which is situated on the lakeshore and dates back to the 17th century. It is is now a renowned luxury hotel. There are two inserts on the chart showing Sna Beg Upper and Sna Beg Lower. The chart also shows the now disused railway line that linked Galway city and Clifden which was in operation between 1895 and 1935.
