I still get surprised when I see just how much this section of the city has changed. When I came to Dublin first all I remember around these parts were dark cobbled streets, abondoned warehouses, hardcore techno joints and dive bars.
It's not just the buildings that have changed. Back then it was almost like the city had turned it's back on the Liffey. There was no boardwalk. Grand Canal Dock was a wasteland. There were 5 less bridges across the Liffey. The river was more of an imposition than an amenity to be embraced.
The Liffey was once the heart and soul of the city....I think we're appreciating that again. This was taken on the Beckett Bridge looking eastward.
