The River Liffey Heritage Project was a joint recording and compilation  initiative undertaken by the Heritage Offices of the five Local Authorities along the course of the river; Wicklow County Council, Kildare County Council, South Dublin County Council, Fingal County Council and Dublin City Council in 2016. The project was co-funded by The Heritage Council through the local authority Heritage Plan Fund.  

Abarta Heritage were engaged to co-ordinate the project and to create a digital database to document and showcase the rich natural, built and cultural heritage along the Liffey from its source in the Wicklow Mountains to the point where it enters the sea in Dublin Bay. 

A selection of information from the River Liffey project is presented in this category in the form of photographs, audio recordings and text. Interviews were undertaken with a range of people who are passionate about the Liffey and knowledgeable about its heritage. We aim to update our database and to explore opportunities to communicate aspects of its rich heritage. Please get in touch is you have a 'Liffey Story' to share.
