3rd to 6th Class: Local Studies Videos 2 and 3 – The Dodder Weir and City Watercourse

Our local studies for 3rd to 6th class continue with two videos about the Dodder Weir at Firhouse and the City Watercourse.

These videos look at the history of how water from the River Dodder was used to give Dublin it’s drinking water, as well as a story of how a wealthy landowner living locally used this watercourse to help get his nephew off a terrible crime.

Pupils from these classes should check with their teachers for worksheets or other homework that goes with these videos.
