, I remember having a glimpse into it a few years back before they blocked it up.

Maybe it was a good thing that they â€œmoth-balledâ€
it till the time is ripe to properly take it a stage further.
How would you like to see it been used yourself?
Going from the colour scheme (pink)
in the map above then this area should be the next phase in line (along with the quays) to be rolled out.
Instead of running a boardwalk along the base of the castle, I think they would be better diverting that money towards a fund for opening that medieval undercroft/cellar.
Above is a view of the steps descending to the river between King Johnâ€™s Castle and Thomond Bridge. If Iâ€™m right, then one can see that the tide comes up as far as the fourth step in this image. Therefore one gets a fair idea of the height required to run the boardwalk. Controversial!!!
By the way it would be nice if the council could repair the cavity
on the right with an appropriate block of limestone, as the saying goes a stitch in time saves nine!

for provision of pedestrian link around the base of the Castle.
