Derg, Lough

Derg, Lough

Irish  Loch Dearg , or  Deirgeirt 

      lake on the River Shannon, situated at the boundary of Counties Tipperary, Galway, and Clare, in Ireland. Lough Derg is 24 miles (39 km) long and 0.5 to 8 miles (1 to 13 km) wide. It is 37 square miles (96 square km) in area, with a maximum depth of 119 feet (36 m). The lake has many islands, and a gorge at its southern end was used for the first modern hydropower system in Ireland. The town of Portumna is located at the lake's northern end, and Killaloe and Ballina are at the southern. The lake is not to be confused with another lake of the same name on the River Derg in County Donegal.
