Dublin Branch

 

We are delighted to be back in business with our first post Covid branch event.

On Tuesday 26th October 2021 - Starting 11.00am

Starting at Binns Bridge, at the end of Dorset St., the walk/stroll will travel along the canal towards Phibsborough

and before reaching Cross Guns Bridge will turn left and leave the canal to follow a route down to the Old City Basin also referred to as the 'almost forgotten secret garden'.

There is  a wealth of historic and attractive features along the whole route and we are fortunate to have Peter Clarke as our guide.

 The walk/stroll will finish very near the  Broadstone DIT Green Luas stop.

 For the past thirty years he has led walks and lectured on the history of the Royal Canal.

His TCD historical geography thesis on the canal was published 1992 as 'The Royal Canal, the Complete Story' (Elo Press) and,

‘Walking the Royal Canal' -  covering 5 walks from Dublin to Maynooth was published in 2014.

Peter is a retired lecturer from the DIT (TU Dublin) and a long-time member of the Irish Georgian Society.

You are welcome to invite a companion to accompany you

RMATUI members from neighbouring branches are welcome to attend.
