Have you ever encountered Dublin’s second river? Come on an unexpected journey that meanders from brown trout and Irish mythology to Normal People and Tinder Passport. Watch the river grow as it flows past the pyramids of Glasnevin and the Jewish cemetery… And finish with a song where the Tolka meets the sea!

Starting point:

Junction of Finglas Road and Ballyboggan Road (see Google Maps screenshot)

Special thanks to Iven Gilmore, Darina Gallagher, Sinéad Murphy, Joey Kavanagh, Michael James Ford, Bairbre Ní Chaoimh, Des Gunning, Ellen Kirk and Sebastián Pulido Suárez.
