Antaine Ó Donnaile and Cormac Ó hÁdhmaill continue their journey southwards, hugging the western shoreline of Lough Neagh.

They travel as far along the Ballinderry River to meet local intercounty footballing legend Phil Stewart. Cormac visits the local Ballinderry Fish Hatchery, which is helping to maintain the native Dollaghan trout population, and they both get to experience high-speed boating skills at the Lough Neagh Rescue Service station at The Battery.

    Another amazing day on the water. The big changes that come over the water with a small change in wind direction or rain or clouds are a constant source of inspiration and delight. Sometimes they are a source of concern like when the waves on Lough Neagh start to grow in height and intensity.

    Ar a laghad, tháining muid slán as. Ba deas liom buaileadh le Phil Stuart, iar-pheileadóir Condae agus laoch áitiúil agus chuaigh laochra eile go mór i bhfeidhm orm, mar na daoine a mbíonn a gcuir féin i mbaol ag amharc i ndiaidh ar leithéidse ar an uisce. Ní dhéanfaidh mé dearmad choíche ar an turas faoi luas a bhí againn ar an bhád tarrthála leo agus a chineálta a bhí siad linn ina dhiaidh. Bhí mé iontach sásta, fosta, buaileadh arís le hiar-léachtóir de mo chuid, an Dr. Diarmaid Ó Doibhlin, a bhfuil na mílte scéalta aige faoi stair na háite seo.

    Lá pléisiúrtha eile - nach méanar dúinn!

  • Cormac's Diary

    We got a real feeling for the huge size of Lough Neagh today. I was relieved to see the relative calm as we left Ballyronan but as the day wore on, the water got rougher.

    Bhí tús maith lenár n-eachtra inniu. Bhí an t-uisce ciúin agus d’imigh an imní uaim. Chuaigh muid isteach in Abhann Bhaile an Doire i ndiaidh tamaill ach ní raibh muid ábalta dul chomh fada suas is ba mhian linn. Tháinig muid ar eas beag agus bhí a fhios agam nach mbeinn in ann é a thrasnú. Ach shíl an fear óg liom go raibh á cheansú aige agus rinne sé a shaith dhícheall dul thairis. Shuigh mise siar ar mo shuaimhneas sa cháic agus lig mé dó. Tig ciall le haois! D’éirigh an ghaoth tráthnóna agus sular bhain muid an Bataire amach, bhí an loch mar inneall níocháin arís. Tháinig an éiginnteacht ar ais orm agus is ar éigean nach ndeachaigh mé béal faoi roinnt uaireanta. Nuair a tháinig muid i dtír, dúirt duine d’fhoireann an bhád tarrthála nach raibh ciall againn a bheith amuigh ar an ghairbhe sin. Ach ansin nuair a thug foireann an bháid amach muid ar an loch, bhain muid tairbhe as an ghairbhe chéanna. Bhí an bád ag dul ar ard-luas, ag bualadh anuas ar an uisce go trom agus ag eitilt arís agus mise ag scairtigh i sean-ard mo chinn!
