I am not sure if this a part of a larger park but because of flooding and construction hoarding the section that I visited was somewhat isolated.

The Lyreen river starts near Rathcoffey. It flows north through Barreen and it joins its main tributary, the Baltracey River. The Baltracey comes from Donadea lake with a small supply of fish. The river then flows through Laragh and through Millfarm and finally through Maynooth. It widens out into a low but wide and powerful river. The river formerly powered the mill there. It flows through the grounds of the St Patrick's College, Maynooth and Maynooth University, behind the castle by Manor Mills. It then flows into the Rye River by the Maynooth Reservoir. The Lyreen is the main tributary of the Rye.
