I was recently contacted by a Dublin 15 resident who regularly uses the Tolka Valley Park. The small footbridge over the Tolka in the section between Corduff and the M3 has been badly scorched by a fire that was lit on the bridge. A number of the planks of wood now have holes in them, or are badly warped. This makes the bridge a hazard to walkers, runners, or young children crossing it.
I took some photos of the damage that has been done and I’ve contacted the Parks Department of Fingal County Council. The Council have said that they will look into the issue.
I think it is really important that repairs are undertaken here. The Tolka Valley Park is a great resource in Dublin 15, and the current dangerous state of this footbridge cannot be left as it is.
