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.

So a year or two ago you put up my post about the damage been done to the Grand Canal [at Mount Street bridge, Dublin 2] by the weekly markets.

I also complained to Waterways Ireland [who rent the land off Dublin City Council], asking them to stop parking vehicles and put down protective mats. They didn’t and just parked bigger vans!

So, how’s that working out for them…
