This name derives from the Gaelic word (An Cúngach) meaning narrow river pass.
The Cognac is situated below Victoria Bridge and just above the "Breen Bridge" - a disused railway bridge. The banks here are fairly clear; the main access point is through the gates next to the factory, with a short walk along the old railway line.
This is a deep running pool, which is good for most types of fishing. If you want a quiet days fishing - this is the place to go.
