What we're about

This is a fun and social group dedicated to cleaning up the Royal Canal. The Royal Canal Way and towpath is a great public amenity in Dublin City, and we want to make it even better! Our aim is to get a group of concerned citizens together to come out and tidy up the space once a month (the second Saturday of every month). The clean-up was initiated by Dublin City North Volunteer Centre, in collaboration with a committee of volunteers. Thank you to Dublin City Council, Fingal County Council, Waterways Ireland, and Inland Waterways Association of Ireland for their support.
