Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge : Metal


The ever resourceful Cee has come up with a new series of challenges, and this week the theme is Metal or the Autumn Season.

I live near Cork City, a very old city of many bridges because the river Lee splits in to two channels before it runs through the city, and then joins up into one channel again as it runs in to Cork Harbour.    It is no wonder tourists get confused to find that there is not one, but two, channels of the  river to the north and south of the city, and it gives a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘Meet you by the river’!

One of the bridges spanning the (north channel) of the Lee is Daly’s Bridge, this is a pedestrian bridge, and is the only suspension bridge over the river.   It is known locally as the Shakey Bridge, as the  bridge moves when someone runs or jumps on the wooden platform. The bridge is mainly wrought iron, and was built in 1926.   It connects a suburb known as Sunday’s Well with the main city park,  Fitzgerald’s Park.

The bridge is even painted white, so it fits perfectly with Cee’s Challenge.
