View of Dublin with Sarah’s Bridge in the foreground. This Bridge, built in 1791, crosses the River Liffey at a little village called Island Bridge and is about 1 mile from the city centre. The foundation stone of the bridge was laid by Sarah, Countess of Westmorland and the wife of the Lord Lieutenant, giving the bridge its name.
