Established in the 1800s The Grand and Royal Canal served Dublin with freight and passenger transport up until the 1960s. As the last barge had passed through the waterways, settlements of people living in houseboats slowly started to emerge along the canals. Up until recent years these communities have existed with little intervention from the government except essential mooring contracts and fees. Currently a new set of legislations proposed by Irish Waterways, threatens to yet again change the life on the canals. This project is a documentation of the canals residents and a community in a time of uncertainty and a prospect of transition.
