Dolphin’s Barn – Grand Canal Clean Up Volunteers This organisation is more than picking up rubbish. We go out to show that we care about the canal. We also advocate for changes to the Canal maintenance to DCC and Waterways Ireland. This clean up group cover from Dolphins Barn Bridge to Sallys Bridge. We meet on the 2nd Sunday of every month at 1pm at the Dolphins Barn Bridge across from the bottle banks. Weather Permitting, we may not always be there if the weather is really bad. We provide litter pickers and gloves and we have arranged for DCC to pick up the litter afterwards. We are interested in advocacy to implement changes to the canal maintenance with Waterways Ireland.
