The River Liffey (Irish: An Life) is a river in Ireland that flows through the centre of Dublin. Its major tributaries include the River Dodder, the River Poddle and the River Camac. The river supplies much of Dublin's water and a range of recreational activities. Ptolemy's Geography (2nd century AD) described a river, perhaps the Liffey, which he labelled Οβοκα (Oboka). Ultimately this led to the name of the River Avoca.
James Joyce's personification of the river in Finnegans Wake (1939) as Anna Liffey or Anna Livia Plurabelle is based on his idiosyncratic transliteration of Abha na Life. See Brendan O Hehir, ‘Anna Livia Plurabelle's Gaelic Ancestry’, James Joyce Quarterly, 2 (1965), 158–66;John de Courcy, Anna Liffey: The River of Dublin (Dublin, 1989);Elizabeth Healy (e., The Book of the Liffey (Dublin, 1989).
