Welcome to the Boyne Navigation – I.W.A.I website

Our group’s objective is the restoration of the Boyne Navigation (Canal), which goes between Drogheda and Navan.

<!– Notice: Work dates for 2023 have yet to be confirmed. Recent poor weather and flooding, has prevented our group been able to do any work on the Drogheda end. Our Navan group are currently on their Summer break but hope to resume their roughly half day workdays each Monday (except bank holidays), in September. –>
