Miscellaneous Dublin yards
While the main shipbuilding in Dublin Involved the Liffey yard, later Vickers, and Ross & Walpole several early years have disappeared without trace.
During construction work a Viking shipbuilding area was discovered on Dublin quays near the civic offices at Wood Quay. The site is marked by a bronze representation of a Viking ship. There is speculation based on ring analysis and carbon dating that one of the Roskilde (Denmark) boats was built at Dublin.
