Locations > Nano Nagle Footbridge
“This bridge was named after Honoria “Nano” Nagle, who is one of the most important figures in Cork’s history who, amongst other things, founded the Presentation Sisters Catholic Order and dedicated her life to helping the poor, focusing particularly on providing education.
The Nano Nagle Bridge was completed in March 1985 and was the City Council’s contribution to the celebration of ‘Cork 800’ – a series of events which celebrated the 800th anniversary of the granting of the city’s charter.
The single span is over 25 metres long and offers great views 3 ways; along the showpiece Grand Parade, West along Sullivan’s Quay and East along George’s Quay to Father Matthew Church & the RTE building – all landmarks of the City. Great spot for doing interviews and pieces to camera.”
