#CelebratePiers – Tomorrow evening, Wednesday 6 December, is a time to celebrate and join in the People on the Pier photo exhibition as part of events for the 200th anniversary of Dún Laoghaire Harbour in 2017.

Over the many years, millions of people have strolled down Dun Laoghaire’s beloved embracing harbour arms of the East and West Piers and many more will continue to step onto the granite built structures protruding into Dublin Bay. It is from the pierheads where you are rewarded the most with wonderful commanding views of both sea and land coupled with countless memories.

A selection of these People on the Pier photos will be projected on the outside of the dlr LexIcon Library from tomorrow at 6.45pm. The exhibition marks the culmination of dlr Libraries’ Bicentenary of the Harbour celebrations and is a project which will have a lasting legacy for the borough's local history collection.

All are welcome to attend the free event and celebrate with mulled wine and mince pies!

The People of the Pier project which began earlier this year was created by the Local Studies department of DLR Libraries and is based on a Humans of New York-style project, that showcases photos of the many people who walk along Dun Laoghaire Pier every Sunday.

Over the last year, the project had invited people to take photos of themselves walking the two piers (plus some older photos). The public were then asked to submit their photos by posting them on social media.
