This may be of interest to the droves of people who walk /drive by it every day and have zero idea what it is! The Diving Bell on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay is getting a renovation [see link below]. T

here since the 1860’s and in use up until 1960’s. The Diving Bell was designed by the “Father of Irish Concrete”, the famed engineer Bindon Blood Stoney. He was the Chief Engineer in Dublin Port at the time. This project is one of several projects by the Dublin Port Company to rejuvenate the historical area around the Port….completion by May 2015…
