Dublin capital city of Ireland
Takes it name from the formation of a Black Pool. arising from the uniting of the Gaelach words Dubh & Linn. Translated "Dub"=Black and "Linn"=Pool,= Blackpool
Combined with the words "Baile or Ath" meaning Town /place/ Mouth = Mouth of the Black Pool. This photo shows the spot where the name is taken from.
The River Poddle and the river Liffey arise in the Dublin Mountains The river Poddle travels much of its way underground and it emerges into the river Liffey just under where the two flags are in this photo. Where it forma a Black Pool. As the river Liffey is at low tide the underground tunnel can just be seen.

The River Poddle at this point marked the boundry and limit of the city in medieval times.at its eastern edge
The Liffey was an important waterway as it was the gateway to the sea and to Englsnd.
The buildings seen here were constructed in the early 1700s and the street layout is still as it was in Medieval times.
