The Shannon River is the longest river in Ireland. It was first mapped by Ptolemy, the Graeco-Eyptian geographer, almost 2000 years ago. The Shannon rises at the Shannon Pot in County Cavan, a small lake, 14.6m deep at its deepest point. The river flows through or along the following counties in the Republic of Ireland before emptying into the Atlantic Ocean: Cavan, Leitrim, Longford, Roscommon, Westmeath, Galway, Offaly, Tipperary, Clare, Limerick and Kerry.
