Poddle River at The Stone Boat, where the City Watercourse separates
The Poddle River, a feature of a wide area, here emerges from a culvert under Sundrive Road and nearby buildings to come to a channel separator in the Mount Argus area. This anvil-shaped stone feature, sometimes "The Tongue" (this locale was once known as the Tongue Fields), sometimes "The Stone Boat," sees the City Watercourse take not more than one third of the channel capacity (this branch used to be the main water supply for Dublin city). The main Poddle flow goes on to pass through an artificial lake, and then, via a culvert, approach Mount Jerome Cemetery.
