Many thanks to Simon's Carwash & Valeting Service for facilitating this camera's location and to the Inland Fisheries Ireland for their help in arranging its installation. The River Suir flows into the Atlantic Ocean near Waterford after a distance of 185 kilometres Popular with anglers, it holds plentiful reserves of brown trout. While the Suir holds the record for a salmon taken from an Irish river, (weighing 57lb/26kg, taken on a fly in 1874. Rising on the slopes of Devil's Bit Mountain, just north of Templemore in County Tipperary, the Suir flows south through Loughmore, Thurles, Holycross, Golden and Knockgraffon. Merging with the River Aherlow at Kilmoyler and further on with the Tar, it turns east at the Comeragh Mountains, forming the border between County Waterford and County Tipperary. It then passes through Cahir, Clonmel and Carrick-on-Suir before reaching Waterford. Together with the Nore and the Barrow, the river is one of the trio known as The Three Sisters. In Clonmel, the Suir floods the local area after very heavy rainfalls falling in the up river catchment of 2,173km2.
