Our city has many unsung heroes who try to keep our streets clean. Ethna O’Kelly, who passed away last year was one of those heroes who was well known for spending her days picking up litter from the streets of Rialto and Dolphin’s Barn.
The Grand Canal Cleanup Group want to honour Ethna’s memory by planting a tree on a piece of waste ground beside the canal at Dolphin’s Barn Bridge. The planting will take place at 1pm on Sunday 9th February beside the Barn House.
The site chosen was a spot where Ethna used to leave bags of rubbish, out of sight of the street.
The Grand Canal Cleanup group meet monthly on the second Sunday of every month, at the Dolphin’s barn Bridge to pick litter and keep the canal and it’s towpaths tidy for the many people who come here regularly. The group was originally set up in 2010 by members of the Dublin South Central Green Party.
