TPS Outing Tuesday, 7th August 2018

This Tuesday’s trip is to the Dodder at Firhouse Weir. The Firhouse weir or the City weir was built in the thirteenth century to convey water from the Dodder in order to supplement the water of the Poddle River which supplied Dublin with drinking water. A lattice bridge was erected about 1860, and this was replaced by the present bridge opened by the SDCC in 1995. We will meet at Molloys car park at 7.30pm sharp to carpool if necessary. As usual keep in touch via the WhatsApp TPS Outings group!

TPS Outing Tuesday, 17th July 2018

This Tuesday’s trip is to Cabinteely Park. Cabinteely Park, which surrounds Cabinteely House, is an example of late 18th and early 19th century landscape. As with Marlay Park, the landscape of Cabinteely Park was highly influenced by Capability Brown, resulting in the natural appearance of the park. Ponds and informal clusters of trees draw attention to the natural lie of the land in order to give it depth. We will meet at Molloys car park at 7.30pm sharp to carpool if necessary. Parking is available in Cabinteely House car park, which can be accessed either from Cornelscourt Hill Road (via M50) or the Bray Road. As usual keep in touch via the WhatsApp TPS Outings group!
