Sat 15 October 2016, 12:00 – 14:00 BST
Discover by bicycle the impacts of the Phoenix Park Tunnel; the challenges which produced a unique cemetery, a new flower garden and a special concert venue. A short visit to McKee Barracks is also included as built just after the opening of the tunnel, it is the only purpose built cavalry barracks built in Ireland. Its position close to city markets and just off Blackhorse Avenue affords it a unique view of the tunnel which runs along its boundary wall while to the rear the barracks has its own gated access directly into the Phoenix Park. Length: 2 hours 30 minutes. Note: Please bring your own bike (BYOB).
Own Bicycle, good walking shoes and rain gear advised. Pace will be comfortable.
