Three Rivers - The Liffey


Hardeep Singh Kohli travels from source to sea of three major rivers that are being regenerated after years of neglect and industrial use. The Liffey, a river beloved of Irish writers - particularly James Joyce, winds its way from the Wicklow Mountains into the heart of Dublin and under 14 bridges. It has also provided power and clean water for those along its path, and at its outer edges encouraged trade with the wider world beyond.
