Virtual Daily Mile Tour of the Waterways – Waterways Ireland

The Daily Mile at home has already been a huge success and now we want you to help us spread the word by joining us for a virtual Daily Mile Tour of the Waterways!

Waterways Ireland have been a huge supporter of The Daily Mile and we want everyone to know what great amenities they can offer.

Obviously with our current Covid 19 restrictions, not everyone can access a Waterway within their 5km radius, so we’re asking those of you who do have access to help us create a virtual tour of the section of the waterways closest to you. This can be your local Waterways Ireland Greenway or Blueway on the;

  • Barrow Navigation
  • Lower Bann Navigation
  • Royal Canal
  • Erne System
  • Shannon-Erne Waterway
  • Grand Canal
  • Shannon Navigation

Simply register below by letting us know what Waterway is located within your 5km radius. We’ll then ask you- through your teacher- to send us a short video clip of you doing  ‘The Daily Mile’ along your local Waterway.



IMPORTANT NOTE: The Daily Mile along your local Waterway should always be supervised by a Parent or Teacher.

You can find a full list of the Waterways Ireland paths and trails here

Once we’ve received all of your video clips, we will then edit them and create  ‘The Daily Mile’  Virtual Tour of the Waterways.

You will have until April 9th to submit your video 😊
