About Royal Canal Clean-Up Team
The Royal Canal Team exists to bring together local residents in an effort to keep the canal-way a clean and appealing place, while promoting the idea of looking after the local area and keeping it litter-free for all to enjoy. The Royal Canal Way is a great public amenity in Dublin City, and we want to make it even better! Our aim is to get a group of concerned citizens together to come out and tidy up the space once a month (the second Saturday of every month).
Do you want to help make the Royal Canal a more pleasant place to spend time? Are you looking for a way to get involved locally and meet new people? We go out once a month on the 2nd Saturday to clear litter and rubbish from the Royal Canal Way from North Strand to Castleknock. We start at 11am and work for about 2 hours.
Please Note - Cancellation of November Clean Up
In response to Leptospirosis warnings from the HSE we have decided to call off our November 9th clean up as a precautionary measure. See further details here.
We have a number of meeting points:
* Castleknock (beside Castleknock Train Station)
* Ashtown (The Canal Bar)
* Crossguns Bridge (beside Des Kelly's)
* North Strand (Charleville Mall)
We are particularly interested in having volunteers who live in the immediate area to join us, but we welcome anyone who is willing to join.
