Seanafaurrachain River/ Little Norway

Very small segment of this river, the sheer volume of drops and slides in close succession warrants comparisons with a Norwegian river. Should be paddled more, its brilliant.

This was only light moderate rain that brought it up to that level. This river is good to go with any large continuous yellow patches of rain!

Ya I've heard that you need rain in specific places/valleys out there! Going by the day we did it you don't need a huge amount though. Cheers bosco!
