Locations > Clontarf Bridge
“At the Eastern End of the City Centre this bridge connects the South side at Albert Quay to the Island at Lapps Quay and forms part of the main road which takes traffic from the South to the North side and out East to the main Dublin road. A typically industrial looking structure it functioned as a lifting railway bridge until 1976, when the lifting gear was removed and it became fixed. Clontarf Bridge has decorative iron parapet railings stamped with McBRIDE CORK and there are defunct iron lamp standards attached to these.
Clontarf or Cluain Tarbh means pasture of the bulls, incidentally.”
