“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.”

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.
