Want to get involved in a Trust for the River Dodder?


We are putting together a committee to potentially form a Dodder River Trust. 

Over 70 people attended a very successful Rivers Trust public meeting hosted on 17th May in Tallaght IT.

The discussion showed a resounding enthusiasm to form The Dodder Rivers Trust to nurture and promote the wellbeing of this unique Dublin River and its rich ecosystem.

Expressions of Interest are sought until 8th June from people wishing to play a part in setting up the Trust over the coming months.

This is the first Urban Rivers Trust in Ireland and builds on previous stakeholder networking initiatives over several years including the Dodder Gathering 2017. More info and follow-up meetings will be shared on Dodder Action Webpage and Facebook.

If you would like to volunteer and be part of a Dodder River Trust, you can fill in the Expression of Interest form, available for download here

Please return your completed form no later than June 8th to shurson@lawco.ie

See you down the Dodder!
