A skiff, a crumpled throwaway, Elijah is coming, rode lightly down the Liffey, under Loopline Bridge, shooting the rapids where water chafed around the bridgepiers, sailing eastward past hulls and anchorchains, between the Custom House old dock and George’s quay.
~James Joyce, Ulysses … (James Joyce bridge, above)
From the River Liffey, and it’s Ha’ Penny Bridge, to Galway’s River Coribb (the shortest river in Europe at 6km) and its bridges and weirs and threatened salmon, to the great River Shannon (the longest of Irish rivers), water (and rain) are everywhere in Ireland.
Galway, or Gaillimh, is called the most Irish city in Ireland. Irish is spoken here everywhere by everyone.
