James Joyce Bridge

James Joyce Bridge is a road bridge spanning the River Liffey in Dublin, joining the south quays to Blackhall Place on the north side.
Designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, it is a single-span structural steel design, 40 m long, with the deck supported from two outward angled arches.
The bridge was built by Irishenco Construction, using pre-fabricated steel sections from Harland and Wolff of Belfast.
The bridge is named for the famous Dublin author James Joyce, and was opened on 16 June 2003 (Bloomsday). Joyce's short story "The Dead" is set in Number 15 Usher's Island, the house facing the bridge on the south side.

River Liffey

The River Liffey flows through the centre of Dublin. Its major tributaries include the River Dodder, the River Poddle and the River Camac. The river supplies much of Dublin's water and a range of recreational activities. It rises in The Wicklow Mountains and flows 125km.
