This afternoon.

Along Suir Road, Dublin.

A temporary dam is being installed at a section of the Grand Canal after it was effectively drained on Sunday after a storm drain underneath the canal collapsed.

A spokesperson for Waterways Ireland said that efforts to repair the issue are under way today while fish were collected and relocated to other sections of the canal.

Smell you later.

    A team of local lads would have built this dam in no time. Isn’t that what they’re good at? (directed to lads).

    What an unusual sight, thanks for posting. A bit shallower than I would have expected.Also a bit cleaner than I would thought too. No Quinsworth trolleys in there, or even a H.Williams one?

    I wonder if it had anything to do with the works being carried out right beside where it happened.

        Theres ongoing works behind it. Also behind that fencing is a cabinet where the ESB connects a truck and forces mineral oil into the old electric lines to keep them cool. There was a recent investigation into it because so much was leaking into the ground.

    What are all cranes in the distance constructing?
    Innocent question from foreign climes.

      I’d say it’s the new children’s hospital.
      (tries not to get all grumpy about the cost)

      They’re just lifting things up and putting them down again over and over to burn through some cash
