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.”
