a few things to cover in this.
Just a reminder about our contribution to the Easter Saturday Team Dublin Cleanup day – we are joining a few other Grand Canal volunteers in cleaning a small area. As mentioned before, it’s a tricky day for people being around so we are keeping the scope narrow and if we get more people we can decide on the day to expand out.
Currently the scope is the area around Blackhorse Luas stop. We will leave our ‘takings’ at that end of the canal. We’ll meet at the gateway up at that end – map attached.
Eric Conroy of the Inland Waterways will be coordinating for the day. He will be joined by other Inland Waterways Assoc of Ireland canal people and our colleagues from voluntary groups downstream. It lasts from 11am to 1. The group will meet at the Blackhorse bridge – map attached and there will be refreshments in the BERA Hall afterwards.
As ever with these things, it’s a volunteer effort. Please look after your own personal safety and exercise common sense when around canal banks.
thanks for last Saturday.
we got a great turnout last Saturday Photos attached. – special mention to our youngest members Sophia and brothers Etienne and Sebastian. –
The place was in bad nick particularly around the Luas stops but we got a lot done.
Rialto Kilmainham Commemoration Group – Guns and Hoses,
Although Guns and Hoses sounds like a drastic solution to those who litter, in fact it’s a very informative talk which will be held in St Andrews Community (map attached)

A number of people have noted to us that Inchicore village has become more littered in recent weeks – we have raised this with DCC and our public representatives and send photos of the worst bits.
Thanks for reading,
