The River Inny is a river in Ireland. It flows from Lough Kinale under the Bridge of Finea into Lough Sheelin in County Cavan and heads south to Lough Derravaragh. From there is flows westwards to the River Shannon, which it joins at Lough Ree.
It is not to be confused with the River Inny that flows in the Iveragh Peninsula, County Kerry.
Ballymahon is the largest town located on the Inny.
Famous quotes containing the word river:
“The rivers tent is broken; the last fingers of leaf
Clutch and sink into the wet bank. The wind
Crosses the brown land, unheard. The nymphs are departed.
Sweet Thames, run softly, till I end my song.
The river bears no empty bottles, sandwich papers,
Silk handkerchiefs, cardboard boxes, cigarette ends
Or other testimony of summer nights.”
—T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
