A further series of very high tides are due to occur over the coming weekend, in particular on Friday 3rd January at 12.33hrs and Sunday 5th January at 14.12hrs. As a precaution the flood gates on the Dodder and the Tolka Rivers will remain closed until the middle of the week beginning Monday 6th January. The Liffey Boardwalk will also remain closed to the public during this period.
Flood defences (sand bags) are installed at strategic locations in Clontarf (near Alfie Byrne Road) and Sandymount for the same duration. Public carparks in Sandymount and Clontarf will be closed during this period and the Council apologises for any inconvenience this, or any other precautionary works, may cause.
Property owners at risk of tidal flooding, particularly in the Clontarf and Sandymount areas. are advised to protect their properties. Suitable guidance on flood protection measures can be found on the website www.flooding.ie
