       There are two branches of the Awbeg River:- Abha Bheag - "The Little River", Spencers - "Gentle Mulla", rises as two different streams which meet at Scart Bridge, one mile west of Shinnagh Railway Bridge. Branch (1) - Rises in Limerick as the Gralgne River and enters Co. Cork a half mile north-east of Ardskeagh Cross Roads, then flows west under the Dublin Railway Line and south under Farran bridge on the Buttevant/Charlevllle road. And on to Scart Bridge to join Branch (2).
Branch (2) - Rises about two miles north of Liscarroll and flows south and then turns north and west under Annagh Bridge to join Branch (1) at Scart Bridge. From here the river flows south through Buttevant and east through Doneraile, turns south near Shanballymore and through Castletownroche to enter the Blackwater at Poulcormac near Bridgetown Abbey.
