    I'd say the person recording the tomfoolery is equally stupid. Did he not realise that most cameras these days do have a zoom function?

    It was recorded on a phone with the only zoom available being a digital zoom. Would you rather have seen a highly pixelated mess on the screen instead of being able to make out what was going on?

    There was something happening? All I saw was a shakey video.

    The height isn't as dangerous as the water they're jumping into. Swimming races are no longer held in Liffey waters because they've been deemed too toxic.

    Would this be the same for the water in the Canal do you reckon?

    There might not be enough depth for them not to hit the bottom when they enter the water.

    Guess it was deep enough or we would have heard, but that's not the point. Some of the responses on this thread show how dismayingly little some know about water safety. :(

    The toxicity level has since declined with the prohibition raised against TD's Clare Daly and Lucinda Cretin urinating into the river.

    My BF was splashed by some manky water from that exact area twice at weekend (by kids intentionally splashing us), and both times, he got some kind of allergic reaction. Eyes streaming, and sneezing for hours after.

    The main problem with the liffey is sewage contamination leading to high levels of bacteria and associated risk of disease from rats etc. Its worst in the city of course. The liffey upstream of island bridge is actually very clean for the most part.

    There are rats too in the canal but much less inflow from sewage pipes so the risk there is less on that front. However around the docks area the water quality of the canals is not great again due to inflow.

    Certainly the grand canal dock and probably the canal waters as far as Rathmines.
