Ha’penny Bridge

One of the most graceful bridges across the River Liffey in Dublin is the Ha’penny bridge, so called because that was the toll charged to pedestrians wishing to cross from one side of the river to the other.

The Temple Bar area is to the right of the picture and this shot is looking towards O’Connell bridge. This bridge can’t be seen, but the large building behind the bridge shows approximately where it is.

On the left is the boardwalk alongside the Liffey. I used to like walking along this in my lunch hour.
