A Limerick A Day


Pollution on the Tolka at Drumcondra’s Griffith Park, Dublin 9 in 2014

For years now out waters have been
So dirty it’s downright obscene
It can’t be disputed
They’re far too polluted
Oh when will our rivers run clean?

    Translates: That is a photo of the Tolka flowing through the Botanical Gardens in Glasnevin, and not Griffith Park, Drumcondra. The Rose Garden is featured on the right.

      not just the farmers – AFAIK, one problem the tolka faces is that a lot of the drains in D15 drain into it – including from kitchens, and that detergent can cause algal blooms which depletes oxygen levels.
