Takes flight

This Heron spotted on the Royal Canal close to the statue of Brendan Behan, which was unveiled in 2003 by the then taoiseach Bertie Ahern.

Indeed, a fabulous walk or cycle along the banks of the Royal Canal right in the heart of the city. The stretch is also beside the railway line which now takes rail traffic from Newbridge to Grand Canal Dock since the opening of the Phoenix Park tunnel.

Apologies, that is not the track that currently takes rail traffic from the southern to the northern line. Those trains travel on a parallell track close to it on its northern side.
