high water

, it again becomes rapid before flowing into the Inniscarra reservoir created by Inniscarra Dam. Moving on, it flows out of Inniscarra dam, a gentle river until it comes to Ballincollig weir located in Ballincollig park. Here, it is dangerous to swimmers when in high water. It then flows into the city under Inniscarra bridge and flows parallel to the Carrigrohane road. Along this section gauges monitor the water levels from the Inniscara Dam. It flows over the Lee weir and then is split into the north and south channel by a sluice. This area is popular for recreation, kayaking and fishing. The two channels join again at the Cork docks and enter the sea at Cobh. Youth Edward Mannock was probably born in Ballincollig, County Cork, Ireland on 24 May 1887, although his birthplace is also claimed to be Aldershot, England or Preston Barracks in Brighton. Franks and Saunders state that there is no record of his birth in the English General Register Office. However the 1911 census gives Brighton as his birthplace. He was probably born in Ireland, but until Irish birth records are checked this must be regarded as uncertain. He was the son of a Scottish corporal in the British Army and an English mother. The family moved to India early in Mick's life, before postings brought the family back to England. His father, a hard-drinking, brutal man, abandoned his family when Mick was twelve. In 1897, Mannock developed amoebic infestation which rendered him temporarily blind. Legend has it that it left him with permanently impaired vision; however accounts written by former comrades discount any such impairment. By age 20, Mannock had joined the Labour Party (Labour Party (UK)) and whilst he burned with a sense of social injustice, according to Jim Eyles, with whom Mannock stayed in Wellingborough, Mannock was deeply patriotic and a fervent supporter of the British Empire. http: www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk FWWmannock.htm DATE OF BIRTH May 24, 1887 PLACE OF BIRTH Ballincollig, County Cork, Ireland DATE OF DEATH July 26, 1918 Healy was born in Ballincollig in County Cork.
