More on the new bridge here with the full public notice here [PDF]. Interesting to see how many of the names of landowners are known to me.
I see on page 6 of the notice that the ESB owns two rivers, which are occupied by the ESB, Waterways Ireland, the Inland Waterways Association of Ireland and other unknown persons. There is a canal, whose owners are unknown, which is occupied by WI, IWAI and the persons unknown, as is an island. I do hope that the council will return the canal, rivers and island when they’ve built the bridge.
