The Millenium Clock was unveiled on March 15, 1996


Who knows where the slime goes?

Dublin 1916 Walking Tours write:

Rooting for something else I just found this postcard from the Millenium Clock. It was a digital clock floating beneath the surface of the Liffey and the idea was you could see how many seconds it was before the year 2000.

Cause it was filthy the clock got the name The Time in The Slime. And when they removed it (cause it was so dirty) it got the name The Gap in The Crap!

It cost 20 pence for the postcard and the space left when they took the machine away from O’Connell Bridge was soon filled with the fake bronze memorial to Fr Pat Noise who “died when his carriage plunged into to The Liffey”.
