The Disabled Stretch allows wheelchair friendly access to the west side of the river, allowing fishing along the bank above the popular weir area. This stretch is part of the Mourneside Walk, a scenic park area along the weir side. Designed with disabled anglers in mind, the park includes seating, walkways, picnic areas and a viewing gallery.
To access this area, approach the river down Mill Lane, from the main junction (traffic lights), in Sion Mills. There is a car park and all weather location maps at the bottom right. Park here and follow the path along the perimeter fence of the Herdsman's Mill, to the Mourneside Walk and Disabled Stretch area.
