The Barrow is a river in Ireland. It is one of The Three Sisters; the other two being the River Suir and the River Nore. The Barrow is the longest of the three rivers. At 192 km , it is the second-longest river in Ireland, behind the River Shannon. The catchment area of the River Barrow is 3,067 km2 before River Nore joins it a little over 20 km before its mouth.
The river's long term average flow rate, again before it's joined by River Nore, is 37.4 cubic metres per second. At the merger with River Suir its catchment area is ca. 5,500 km2 and its discharge over 80 m3/s.
Among the towns that the River Barrow passes through on its way to the sea in Waterford are Portarlington, Monasterevin, Athy, Carlow/Graiguecullen, Muine Bheag Graiguenamanagh, and New Ross.
