Dublin Canals Action Day

The 2018 Dublin Canals Action Day was held on the 21st of April. We hope to hold another event in 2019 and details will be updated as they emerge.

If you would like to join a regular clean up along the canals see links below to volunteer groups operating 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 and Waterways Ireland 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 21st 2018 we held the third ever group clean up, Dublin Canals Action Day.

People across the city joined us at the following locations to show our canals some extra love

  • Bulfin Estate Resident’s Hall
  • Sally’s Bridge
  • Leeson Street Bridge
  • Grand Canal Basin
  • Spencer Dock
  • North Strand
  • Cross Guns Bridge
  • Ashtown
  • Castleknock
