NORTH WALL QUAY – DUBLIN DOCKLANDS
In the late 1960s I worked for the B+I shipping company and was based on the North Wall Quay and back then it was not a pleasant location but things have greatly changed since then but many of the original workers became unemployed during the following decades.
North Wall is an area east of the inner north side of Dublin, along the River Liffey. It contains the entire north side of Dublin Docklands and includes the International Financial Services Centre, Spencer Dock, and further east the main part of Dublin Port.
The area is dominated by a combination of older housing, dockland activities and new development through the Docklands Strategic Development Zone Planning Scheme, including extensive construction of new retail, residential and office spaces.
