The Samuel Beckett bridge, turned 90° in ‘open’ configuration alongside Sir John Rogerson’s Quay on the Liffey, Dublin, yesterday.

A rare enough sight, due to become more common with increased river traffic in the weeks ahead.

You may care to peruse a schedule of the bridge’s movements between now and the end of June.

A deep bass throbbing got my attention and I tracked it down to the LE Niamh as she entered Dublin past the East Link bridge just now (2:05 pm). Apparently 14 metres shorter than her little sisters the Samuel Beckett and the James Joyce, the Niamh is still one hell of a good looking vessel!

Sexist pig.
