Many of Ireland's older generations still have memories of the waterways in their heyday, be it splashing in the waters on a hot summer's day, steering one of the barges through the endless locks, or avoiding a particularly spooky part of the canal.
What was it really like to travel on a barge all day, every day? What did they eat? How did they stay warm? Is it true they tapped the Guinness barrels along the way?
