Samuel Beckett Bridge and the Convention Centre

Maria McGrane

Just where the Samuel Beckett Bridge stands at the end of Mayor St is the mooring station for the Liverpool boat. Cattle which had been in holding pens on the North Circular Road were driven from there, along Seville Place or Sheriff St to more holding pens at Spencer Dock or on Mayor St itself. Once the boat was in position, the animals were loaded into the hold, whilst crowds of people boarded the upper decks to visit relatives abroad or to take their leave of Ireland forever. The last sight of their home country was the spire of St Laurences O’Toole’s Church.
