I have posted photos of it in the Killiney topic. Talked about it before Grammer. It comes up overground at the back of Tesco's in Deans'grange.

Some years ago a young boy lost his life in this stream.
He took a fit and fell into the stream and could not be
revived when found.
All these streams look harmless but they all have a tale
to tell. It is surprising how they rise after rainfall.

Lovely way to go. Drop a note to DunLaoghaire Co Co Parks Dept...they should have everywhere wheelchair accessible.

They also have a policy of alienating cyclists at every opportunity.

Having just come back from the "land of the fit and lean"...the Austrians cycle everywhere and the pedestrians have to beware and "dismount". We were in a gorgeous place that has wanderwegs and cyclewegs and thousands of bodies set off every morning with lunches and backpacks and enjoy the day...hail rain or snow. They have jackets for all weathers and I'd say very few bad hearts there!!

The council will have to cop itself on..the people of Ireland must get fit!!P.S back on topic...we can all walk along the Clonkeen stream weg...see yis with yer lunches tomorrow. hellllo
