High Tech Historical Map of Dublin Port Released

Must read

In order to highlight the region’s economic, cultural, and national legacy, the Dublin Port Company created a new historical map as part of the Dublin Port Historical Conservation Strategy.

Discoveries from archaeological investigations beneath the surface of Dublin Bay, the industrial past of surviving structures on the 300-year-old Dublin Port site, and more are all included.

One of the mapping exercise’s most striking conclusions is the confirmation that, out of the 300 shipwrecks that are known to have happened in Dublin Port throughout the years, just 18 have been completely discovered.

Experts think that there are still shipwrecks at sea from the Viking era, as there has been evidence of Viking-era shipwood washing up along Dublin Bay.

There’s also the discovery of the Millstone Wreck, an 18th-century shipwreck that illustrates the extent of trade that has occurred in this region over the ages.

A live and evolving chronicle of Dublin Port’s history over the last 300 years and the continuous preservation of statutorily protected structures like the site’s old Odlums Flour Mills are further components of the conservation strategy map.

Making Dublin Port’s history more widely known and accessible is a crucial component of the conservation strategy, according to Lar Joye, Heritage Director of Dublin Port Company, who spoke during the initiative’s introduction.

Earlier, in an interview, he urged the people to visit the Port.

“There’s a diving bell on Sir Rogersons Quay as well. It chronicles the construction of the East Quays and North Walls and is Ireland’s smallest museum,” he said.

The plan said to State Minister for Historical Malcolm Noonan, has offered Dublin the opportunity to protect the “remarkable heritage tapestry” at the location.
