...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this,'s reader-funded journalism won't survive. With nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

The project, which the council said is being planned in agreement with Fingal County Council and the National Transport Authority, aims to restore the river in order to address the high levels of existing flood risks.

As part of this, the council sees the river as a potential backbone for green infrastructure while providing for the walking and cycling greenway as well as what it calls sport to cultural and recreational possibilities.

On its portal for the project,, Dublin City Council said: “This is an introductory event to have your say and to allow us to capture your feedback. This will be an ongoing process as this project moves from concept design to planning approval through to construction.”

The council added: “This event will be split into four areas, with each slot looking at a different section of the river. Weather permitting a walk along sections of the river will also take place to allow on site discussions.”
