#Rowing: Two currachs set off from Ringsend and rowed up the Liffey into Dublin city to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the First Dail on Monday. Paraic Ó Fatharta, Gearoid Ó Conghaile, Dave Kelly and piper John Lamb drew the attention of an unsuspecting city audience to the Liffey. At 3.30 they positioned the currachs between the Ha'penny Bridge and O'Connell Bridge, while Lamb piped Amhrán na bhFiann to coincide with the centenary commemoration under way at the Mansion House at the same time. The Tricolour and the Starry Plough were flown.
