River Liffey, Dublin
The river Liffey is the main river in Dublin, the capital of Ireland.
It rises in Sally Gap near Kippure in Wicklow, the county just south of Dublin. It then travels one hundred and twenty five kilometres through the centre of Dublin City, and out into Dublin Bay, and out to the Irish Sea.
There are several bridges across the Liffey, such as the Ha'penny bridge, so called because it used to cost half a penny to cross it, and O'Connell bridge. The last bridge on the river is a toll bridge called the East Link , which is four hundred metres from the mouth of the Liffey.
