There are 3 spots on the top section of the Beamish that currently require extra caution. A quarter of the way down, there is a large trunk completely blocking the river. Past half way, there is a branch sticking out from the left blocking most of the river. There is another branch in the last drop before the bridge. No info on the section from the bridge down to the confluence above Blackstones.
Large tree downed just upstream from the Lucan get on spot, Tree covers the entire length of the river with a small passage on river right eroding away on the bank in low water levels.
Tree down fully blocking rivet, approx 300 mtrs downstream of Tourmakeady waterfall.
(21 Sept 2014) A tree is down, fully across the river, located towards the end of the castletown grounds, between Castletown Rapids and St. Wolstans Weir.
OWNGAR- the tree strainer just after the confluence with the owvane has got bigger. just possible to squeeze through on far left but big groups or beginners will need to portage
