Through swallow holes on Cuilcagh (Binn Chuilceagh), water drains down off the mountain and rises here at the Shannon Pot. It's quite an eerie place to pass some time, watching the water swirling up from underground and then rushing out of the pot and heading south to eventually empty into the Atlantic at Limerick. Well signposted on the Blacklion to Glangevlin road, there are car-parking facilities and a new pathway that allow anyone to have access to this quite magical spot. ryaner Posted by ryaner
