The Liffey Quays, A Ribbon Of Green: Fergal McCarthy at TEDxDUBLIN

I was asked to talk at TedX Dublin at the Grand Canal Theatre last September (organised by the Science Gallery). I spoke about an idea I have to construct an 8km long linear park along the banks of the Liffey in Dublin. One lane of traffic at both sides of the river could be removed and the resulting space would become a walkway with trees, planting, playgrounds, markets, skateparks and many other attractions. The park would connect with the boardwalks and the campshires in the docklands unifying all the space around the Liffey as an incredible amenity for Dubliners and visitors to the city.
