The River Burren. This is a view taken from or near the bridge on Kennedy Avenue that leads to the old Quinnsworth shopping centre which Penneys have bought. Quinnsworth have re-located to the new shopping centre in the old Fair Green/Cattle Mart.
The Victorian lamp standards are a new feature. The roof of the post office is on the right and the Burrin bridge at the end of Burren Street is just out of sight.
