Name That Stream! Blackrock School Pupils Need Your Help

Name That Stream! Blackrock School Pupils Need Your Help

#InlandWaterways - Can you help pupils at Blackrock's International School Dublin identify the stream behind their building?

The 9-to-12-year-olds in Miss Nelson's class have been researching the natural history of the neighbourhood surrounding their school in South Co Dublin, but have been stumped by the stream that runs behind the school building.

The narrow waterway runs north through St Louise's Park and alongside Barclay Court before going under and through Blackrock. Visible on many online maps, it's only labelled by name on one as the Carysfort-Maretimo Stream.

Miss Nelson's class are hoping any locals reading this can confirm if their stream is indeed known by that name, and any other information about it such as its history, where it rises and where it flows.

If you think you can help, please leave a comment below!

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
