Dublin Port Walks
Download, walk & listen with the Dublin Port Walks. Port Walks is an online audio project connecting Dublin Port Seafarers with Dublin Port Walkers and offers opportunity for you to engage with your surroundings on a walk and through a free site specific public artwork.
Around 90% of world trade is carried by the shipping industry. In Ireland, Dublin Port handles almost 50% of the Republic’s trade. Two thirds of all containerised traffic destined for Ireland arrives at Dublin Port. The seafarers who operate these vessels have been called an invisible community. The project intends to make a link between seafarers and the recreational walkers around Dublin Port using audio podcasts.
The podcast is available for download on portwalks.ie/podcasts as well as other platform providers (iTunes /SoundCloud).
