One response to “Waterways of the south-east

  1. Would there be any chance of listing this old waterway in Waterford City which was used by coal, sand and gravel barges up to the 1950’s.The waterway has suffered badly over the years however it is staging somewhat of a comeback with a flood relief scheme underway clearing most of the river and our volunteer group working to restore the old canal stretch on the Tramore road.The major issue with the river is 2 low level bridges and some pipes were built across it in the 1980’s cutting much of it off to boating activity.We got a commitment from City Council that the pipes issue would be dealt with as part of the flood scheme.Would you have any further advice?Could you lend some weight for our arguments and also lobby City Council?
