Royal Canal Walking Tour with Peter Clarke

04.07.2016

Posted by IGS

A group braved the weather on Saturday morning where they assembled at Binn's bridge beside the Brendan Behan statue. The tour, led by long time member Peter Clarke, then proceeded to walk the course of the Royal Canal speaking on its development and construction. The construction of the canal was a monumental build with involvement of well known figures of the period including the Conolly's of Castletown and the Leinsters. The group finished the tour at the Blessington Street basin.
