The recent drought in Ireland has ended with heavy rain showers affecting most parts of the country today. And after heavy rain there is one historic piece of engineering that is worth a visit. It is the noisy and impressive Balrothery Weir on the River Dodder. It is located adjacent to the Tallaght/ Templeogue junction on the M50, junction 11. The weir is 75 metres long and 5 metres high.
