Changing Face of Grand Canal Dock Features on RTÉ’s Nationwide

Tune into this past Wednesday’s edition of Nationwide on the RTÉ Player to catch presenter Anne Cassin taking in the sights of Dublin’s Grand Canal Dock from the water.

Anne joins a tour hosted by Jim O’Riordan of the Inland Waterways Association of Ireland’s (IWAI) Dublin branch on the restored Liffey Ferry around the changing face of the canal basin — once a neglected past of the city as seen in a U2 video from 40 years ago, but now home to such corporate giants as Google.

There’s still four weeks left to watch the segment which starts at eight minutes into the Wednesday 9 February edition of Nationwide, available for viewers in Ireland on the RTÉ Player HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
