Dromineer, 8km from the bustling market town of Nenagh, is located on the widest part of Lough Derg (16km across). Since Viking times and before, the Shannon has provided an artery for transport through the heart of Ireland,. It is not surprising, therefore, that the Normans built a castle here - the imposing ruin of which still dominates the village. Later, before the railway came to Nenagh, Dromineer became a busy port from which barges carried agricultural produce to Dublin via the middle Shannon andthe Grand Canal, and returned with products - like Guinness!
