<h2 class="style2">Castletown, River Nore</h2>             <p>August 2011</p>             <p>We are not sure of the 'status' of this swimming spot, but we do                know that people do swim in Castletown, one of the few places we                know of for swimming in Laois.</p>             <p>We swam in a small pool beneath the weir. This is an attractive                location with a nature trail running along side it. When we were                there the water was low and not great for swimming. Even then there                was a strong flow so be careful. With the constant flow the water                was cool and refreshing, just what you need on a sticky August day.              </p>             <p>Nearby there is the old castle with a couple of seats and alongside                the weir is a grassy area suitable for picnics.</p>             <p> <br /><a href="http://maps.google.com/maps?q=52.978958,-7.495208&amp;num=1&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;t=m&amp;z=14&amp;ll=52.977266,-7.496347&amp;source=embed" style="color:#0000FF;text-align:left">View Larger Map</a></p>             <p><i>Directions: </i></p>             <p><i>From Dublin you travel on the M7 and after exit 17 you watch                out for an exit onto the N7 for Mountrath and Roscrea.
