The Bridge with Strings Attached

Samuel Beckett was an Irish novelist and playwright that was born in Dubin in 1906, he wrote many plays and novels, one of the most famous being ‘Waiting for Godot‘   He lived most of his life in Paris, and died there in 1989.  He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969, and in recognition of his contribution to the arts, one of the newer bridges crossing the Liffey in Dublin has been named the Samuel Beckett Bridge

A Bridge with Strings

This is a very contemporary looking bridge, installed in 2009, and looks like a harp lying on its side, and it is most impressive when seen at night, with all the buildings around it lit up.

    Great bridge. I was trying to find one somewhere on the east coast that it reminds me of, but I don’t remember the name of it. Thanks for sharing. BTW I retired August 31, 2012. Isn’t retirement grand?
