Photographer's Note

Dublin (Baile Átha Cliath, in Irish) is the capital of the Republic of Ireland (Poblacht na hÉireann), at the mouth of the River Liffey (An Life) — this photo. Its English name is an anglicism of Duibhlinn or Dubh Linn (Irish for Black Pool). Its modern Irish name, Baile Átha Cliath (The Town of the Ford of the Reed Hurdles), refers to the settlement founded in 988 by High King Mael Sechnaill II (a.k.a. Máel Sechnaill mac Domnaill), 1000 years before this picture.
I visited the city when Dublin celebrated its millennium, while I was serving in a corvette of the Portuguese Navy (the NRP Afonso Cerqueira). The photo was taken from the ship's high bridge.
See also the ship in Velas (Azores, Portugal).
