Dublin, Republic of Ireland

Gordon on the he Ha'penny Bridge over the River Liffey, Dublin. Not sure you'll pick him out! Built in 1816 it was originally named the Liffey Bridge but is now called the Ha'penny because until 1919 there was a half-penny charge to cross it.


What do you do when the rain just won't give up? Hop on a city tour bus!!

The Spire of Dublin is locally known variously as the stiletto in the ghetto; the spire in the mire; the spike in the dyke; poker near Croker; erection at the Intersection; stiffy by the Liffey; the nail in the pale!
