Alternatively, if you would like to join a regular monthly clean up along the canals in your area see links below to volunteer groups operating all across the city.

Dublin Clean Canals

The Dublin Clean Canals group is a collective of a number of local voluntary clean up groups along both of the canals running through Dublin.

With support from Dublin City and Fingal councils, Waterways Ireland and Clean Coasts amongst others the individual groups run clean-ups throughout the year within the city. The groups come together once a year to bring some focus to our much loved canals and run one large Action Day event.

What we do

The aim of this group is to promote the use of both of Dublin’s beautiful canals to their fullest potential as amenities and safe areas for wildlife and right through the city.

To this end regular volunteer clean ups are organised throughout the year and on April 27th 2019 we will hold our fourth ever group clean up, Dublin Canals Action Day.

People across the city can join us at various locations to show our canals some extra love.
