20/02/2010 - approaching Sherrif St. lifting bridge at Spencer Dock.  The clearance of the bridge is 84 (2.13m).  The bridge (dating from ~1948) is non-operational.  Immediately beyond it is an ESB HT cable.  The clearance under this was measured at from 54 (1.37m) to 63 (1.60m).

20/02/2010 - Looking south towards Sheriff St. Bridge - the Dubhlinn had to break the ice on the Royal Canal.
20/02/2010 - There are three rail bridges in parallel.  Interestingly, the pillars on the southernmost are concrete, the middle one has cut-stone pillars while the norternmost one has cast iron pillars.
20/02/2010 - Swans nesting on a pallet.

20/02/2010 - This is a lifting rail crossing immediately south of Newcommon bridge.  As you can see, the bridge is actually sitting in the water with a clearance of zero.  The bridge is bolted in place and isn't lifted very often.  The spur carried by this bridge shows negligible use.
