Near Downpatrick, Co. Down

The Quoile River (from the Irish: An Caol meaning 'the narrow') is a river in County Down, where, in October 1991 during dredging operations, a piece of oak, perhaps the remains of a log-boat, was found. Following dendrochronological dating it was found to have a Neolithic date of 2739 BC. The Quoile Countryside Centre is a glorious wetland retreat, located just outside Downpatrick, which boasts a variety of beautiful and tranquil woodland and riverside walks.
