Memorial to Dr Ian Bath, RCAG Founding Member

Fundraising Appeal.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Royal Canal Amenity Group.

In 1974 Dr Ian Bath called a meeting in Coolmine, just a few hundred meters from the canal, to examine its state of dereliction and to discuss what might be done about its restoration.

Ian’s dedication and persistence over the following 36 years and the leadership he gave to hundreds of volunteers, resulted in the restoration of a historic waterway which we can all enjoy today.

To mark this special anniversary RCAG have decided to commission a suitable memorial to honour Ian and his achievement. The sculpture, which is being prepared at present, will be installed later this year on the canal-side at Castleknock near to where Ian once lived.

We are now inviting all members, current or past, to donate to this worthy cause. You can contribute by using any of the channels listed below.

May I thank you most sincerely in advance.
