Staying in Wednesday?

Episode two of An Cuan – looking at a year in the life of Dublin Bay.

Linda Ní Ghríofa writes:

This  focuses on Dublin Bay in the Summer. Dublin Bay blossoms in the summer and its many inhabitants make the most of the good weather. While spring brought new life to the bay, summer now brings longer and warmer days to thousands of busy animals, nursing and protecting their very vulnerable young.

Nestled amongst the cranes and berths of Dublin Port, ecologists check on the special pontoons built for the local tern population. On Bull Island, the rare and beautiful Bee Orchid comes into bloom. On Bloomsday, Joyceans celebrate the special connection between Ulysses and Dublin Bay. Whilst, under the water, local divers explore the sub-aqua world of Dublin Bay.

An Cuan on Wednesday at 9.30pm on TG4.

A recent discharge from the Ringsend wastewater treatment plant into Dublin Bay

A sewage leak into Dublin Bay has been blamed on increased construction work pushing rubble into the system.

An analysis by Irish Water of material arriving at the wastewater treatment plant in Ringsend after the incident two weeks ago found that it was not normal sewage.

The material contained substances that were “possibly entering the sewer network as a result of the increase in construction activity across the city”, the company said.
