Clontarf Bridge

Clontarf Bridge in Cork is a bridge across the River Lee, opened in 1912 and still very much in use. Originally built to link two railways it’s now used for road traffic! This Cokipedia page has lots more info on the bridge and this page mentions that the bridge, “could be lifted to allow the schooners and coasters access to the quay.”

    This bridge reminds me of two things:

    There used to be a geocache on this bridge that was a small magnet. I remember looking for it and getting nothing but dirty hands.

    I remember that the ESB installed lighting on this bridge for the millennium celebrations. they were rubbish.

    Nice shot all the same
