The Camac Clondalkins big river

The Camac is a 24km river that runs through county Dublin. The
source of the river is Mount Seskin , Saggart the mouth of the river is
River Liffey at Heuston staiton. Over 100 years ago many mills such
as sawmills, papermills, woollen mills, grain mills and gun powder
mills all lined the riverbanks. Although the paper mill only shut in
1987 Many people depended on the Camac as a source of power.
Today there is a group called Friends of the Camac who help the
wildlife and nature that are at the camac, they also bring young
people on tours of the Camac where they teach the background and
history of the Camac, I think that’s important because a lot of
Clondalkins history is based around the Camac . The Camac passes
through many places in Dublin including Heuston station,
Inchicore ,The Royal Hospital Kilmainham, Kilmainham Gaol ,
Courthouse , Drimnagh Castle and the Round Tower Clondalkin. It
has played an important role in many peoples lives . The river is now
hidden in a lot of places due to modernizaiton like roads being built
ect . I’m interested in the Camac because it goes past my school and
my school is named atfer it. My school is called Gaelscoil Na
Camóige. The Camac runs through Corcagh Park, I happen to live
beside Corcagh Park and the Camac makes lovely streams in the park
that my dog enjoys playing in. I like the Camac because there is many
beauitful lfowers and wildlife. I think we should all try our best to
keep the Camac clean and litter free for everybody to enjoy!
