Footpath beside River suir from the Dry Bridge, Old Bridge to Denis Burke Park: At a recent meeting of Clonmel Borough District I requested that the council look at providing a footpath beside the River Suir from the Dry Bridge, Old Bridge to Denis Burke Park. The council advised that the matter had been examined and will involve further detailed analysis. They have a number of concerns including there being no buffer between the footpath and the end river edge therefore a railing would be required. They stated that a railing would likely be an impediment to flow at medium/high river levels and any such proposal would need the consent of the O.P.W. The council advised that the proposal is within the confines of the river channel at medium/high river levels and may have adverse impacts on river levels. They stated a hydrological assessment would be required. They also advised that there are gradient issues which required further analysis. I will continue to follow up on this matter and keep you updated.
