Dublin Port Company will host a major conference on 29th April on the history and environment of Dublin Bay.  The conference will celebrate the 300th anniversary of the building of the Great South Wall, the beginning of the modern port.  This one-day event will explore the history of the bay from maritime archaeology and historic maps to the sailing trawlers that once plied its waters.  Several experts will explain how the sandy shorelines change shape and how new sand dunes and saltmarsh are formed.  The estuarine life, coastal birds and marine mammals will all be profiled.  The conference will end with consideration of the future for Dublin Bay, the options for management and the likely impacts of climate change.
