Based on the McMahon Report, a survey involving the engineers of the Commissioners of Public Works in consultation with local businessmen and anglers, works were undertaken to improve drainage, to facilitate navigation, and to provide waterpower to the many mills in Galway. Waterpower was the bedrock on which the industry of Galway city was based, and by the mid-19th century there were some 30 mills in the city with associated headraces and tailraces which resulted in an intricate network of small waterways, which greatly added to the charm of Galway.

One of the most successful refurbishments of the many we have seen in recent years here in Galway is undoubtedly that of John Keoghs, The Lock Keeper on Upper Dominick Street. This pub and restaurant opened in Galway’s West End in spring 2016, developed by Matt Hall, a Galway resident, as a sister venue to MacBride’s Bar in Westport, Co Mayo. The pub and restaurant take its name from a real character called John Keogh who really was the lock keeper of the adjacent Parkaveara canal lock on the Eglinton Canal in the middle to late 19th century.

The main channel discharging all the water from loughs Corrib and Mask is the Galway River, flowing from Lough Corrib through the city to the sea. Among the structures built in 1850 and the following years, during the course of a drainage scheme carried out by what was then known as The Board of Public Works in Ireland, was the main regulating weir across the Corrib at Waterside. Its function was to control the river level at Galway in the interests of draining, milling, and navigation. It was built at a point in the river where the water descended though rapids.
Claims that works being carried out on the Eglinton Canal are destroying the biodiversity of the region, are being carried out without consultation, and are in effect, a redevelopment of the canal, have been dismissed as incorrect by the Galway City Council.
