Dublin City Council writes:

“There is a further high tide predicted for Wednesday 15th January, 2020 at 3pm. As a result the flood defences and car parks will remain closed at Clontarf, Sandymount and along the tidal reaches of the River Dodder. These will be removed on Thursday 16th January.

Dublin City Council will continue to monitor and take necessary action over the coming days.”



North Strand, Dublin 1

Cian Ginty writes:

In planning since 2012, the Clontarf to City Centre Cycle Route was supposed to provide a fully segregated two-way cycle path between the existing coastal path at Clontarf and the city centre, via Fairview and North Strand.

But instead the council has opted for a non-continuous cycle route which mixes cycling with buses, heavy traffic and pedestrians.

The solution is to return to a design with a continuous two-way cycle path on the east side of the road along the route. This is the safest, most space efficient, and most attractive option for most people who cycle now and those who will cycle when conditions are improved.

I bought a brand new bicycle yesterday and it was stolen from the bike cage in the underground car park of my building in the Ashbrook estate in Clontarf, Co Dublin.

It didn’t even last 24 hours. I didn’t even get to know her. I was hoping you could spread awareness in case people spot it online or in the city. Appreciate any help.



Construction underway in August at Clontarf Road, Dollymount

I share the dismay of Kay O’Rourke (October 7th) at the new concrete wall going up along the Clontarf Road. This wall blocks the view of the lagoon and Bull Island from the road and appears to be heading from the causeway all the way to the wooden bridge. None of our local representatives flagged it at the planning stages. All I got through my letterbox was the good news story of work beginning on a new coastal bike path. This view is one of the great joys of living in this part of the city and a major public amenity beloved by generations of locals and day-trippers alike. To add insult to injury, this stretch of the seafront is not prone to flooding.
