Dublin Canals Action Day

A huge thank you to all who joined us for Dublin Canals Action Day 2019!

The day was a huge success with the canal sparkling from Inchicore on the Grand canal all the way to the Liffey and up through the Royal canal out to Clonsilla. A huge amount of waste was taken from our waterways by a hardy crew of 300+ volunteers. Thank you so much for showing your canals and your city such love. 

For information on the groups that run regular clean ups on the canals throughout the year either scroll down or click on the location you prefer on Google maps here.

We will contact all 2019 subscribers next year with details of the 2020 Dublin Canals Action Day when we have details confirmed. 

Thank you all, you are wonderful!


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 held our fourth ever group clean up, Dublin Canals Action Day.

Keep an eye out next year for our 5th annual Action!
