Portaneena Marina Boating and Yachting
The inner lakes at the south east corner of Lough Ree on the Shannon is a haven of nooks and cranies, amenities and wonderful places to go. One of the first people to see the potential of this area back in 1958 was Eyre Chatterton of Portaneena. Eyre Chatterton was born in Enniskerry, while his wife Betty hailed from Scotland, where their children were born.
When Eyre, Betty and their children moved to the area, they viewed it as somewhere to retire. They had hoped that they would use the land for a private home and a mooring facility for their own boat and those of their friends. Boating is in the blood in the Chatterton family. Eyre had an old wooden barge, with three outboard motors mounted on the back. Eyre then bought an aluminium boat called Michele in 1952, still to be seen in Portaneena to this day, albeit up on the hard.
