Wooden Bridge at Dollymount The Image Bureau

The wooden bridge leading from the Clontarf Road to Dollymount Beach, also known as Bull Island or the Bull Wall. The wall is actually the North Wall of Dublin Bay and Captain William Bligh (of the Bounty) was responsible for it – from wikipedia – “He (Bligh) did, however, design the North Bull Wall at the mouth of the River Liffey in Dublin. Its purpose was to clear a sandbar by Venturi action. As a result of its building. North Bull Island was formed by the sand cleared by the river’s now more narrowly focused force. Bligh also charted and mapped Dublin Bay”
