Waterways Ireland notifies users of the Royal Canal that navigation in and out of Dublin is suspended until the completion of various lock gate repair works.

Repairs and/or upgrades are being conducted at Lock 12 in Castleknock, Lock 10 in Ashtown and the Spencer Dock Sea Lock.

In addition, users of the towpath between Lock 3 on Whitworth Road and Lock 5 at Cross Guns in Drumcondra are advised that Iarnród Éireann will be undertaking works to the boundary wall over the coming weeks.

Any impact on towpath use should be limited, but pedestrian management measures will be put in place if required and the canal towpath will remain open throughout, Waterways Ireland says.

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.
