Many thanks to Sion Mills Angling Club for facilitating this camera's location and capitally funding its installation. The River Mourne, has been well known for many years as one of the finest game fisheries in the Foyle system and indeed the entire province. It's proximity to the small community at Sion Mills has meant that the river has been part of life in the area, with skills and knowledge being handed down through successive generations. The River Mourne (Irish: An Mughdhorn) is a river in County Tyrone (between Strabane and Newtownstewart), Northern Ireland, and is a tributary of the River Foyle. At Strabane it joins with the River Finn to form the River Foyle. The Mourne Riverside Walk officially opened on the 8th June 1999, as a staging post for this philosophy of growth. The walk is initially a tourist attraction, with special facilities for disabled anglers. It incorporates scenic woodland walkways, information signs, picnic sites and a viewing gallery.
