Up the Inny

The navigation of the River Inny from Ballynacarrow upriver to Lough Sheelin.

A wooden bridge over the Liffey

The Freeman’s Journal of 30 August 1873 says that a member of the crew of a canal boat, travelling on the Liffey, fell overboard but managed to swim ashore and climb one of the ladders up the quay wall to dry land. It says that the accident occurred as the boat was “passing under the wooden bridge across the Liffey”. I didn’t know there was one and would be glad to learn more about it, especially its location.
