A Little Information About the River Shannon

A School Project by Shannon Armour aged 8


The River Shannon is in Ireland.

The river is named after Sionna… a Celtic goddess.

The Shannon is said to rise in the Shannon Pot… a small pool on Cuilcagh Mountain.

The river is 360·5 kilometres long and is the longest river in the British Isles.

It runs into the Atlantic Ocean at Limerick.

Shannon received a Certificate of Achievement and a Gold Star from her teacher... Mr Burrows, for her project
