For a time the river was constrained to return from "its perverse course" to its original channel, but later on, as maps of the period show, the river broke bounds again, and gave necessity for a temporary wooden bridge as well as the permanent stone one.
Owing to the spreading of the Dodder at its mouth these cars, which were of most primitive construction, were able to cross the river at low water, and flew over the sands between Ringsend and Lazar Hill, now Townsend Street, without waiting to consider whether bridges were available.
As it was seen that it would be useless to deepen the mouth of the river unless measures were taken to prevent the influx of sand from the coast to the south of Ringsend, the construction of a barrier, where the South Wall now runs, was undertaken at a very early stage of the work.
