- Once an important part of Dublin and Ireland's transport network, the section of the Royal Canal that passes through the city is generally in a state of disrepair. One of the more charming stretches of the canal between Drumcondra and Phibsborough passes by the imposing towers of Mountjoy Prison. Like so many parts of Dublin, it is immortalised in a song, The Auld Triangle!. For those interested in angling, coarse fishing for roach, perch, pike, tench and eels is permitted between locks one to seven all year around.
