The O'Connell Bridge is a small bridge in the center of Dublin. It spans the Liffey River and connects to O'Connell Street in the north. It can be said to be the main road of Dublin. The bridge itself is not very long, only less than 100 meters.
The O'Connell Monument was built to commemorate the Irish national leader Daniel O'Connell in the 19th century. This street is also named after him. The O’Connell Bridge across the Liffey River opposite the O’Connell Monument is naturally named after him. This bridge connects O’Connell Avenue and D’Olier Avenue and the pier. It was built in 1794 and named O’Connell Bridge in 1880. When we went there, the streets and bridges were being renovated, so it looked messy, so that the whole view of the bridge was not clear. The part enclosed in the middle of the second and third pictures is the middle of the bridge deck, the fourth and fifth pictures. The picture shows the Liffey River on both sides and the bridge in the distance.
The O’CONNELL BRIDGE (O’CONNELL BRIDGE), which stands on the Liffey River in the center of Dublin, was built in 1794 and named after its current name in 1880. It should be said that this is the most important bridge on the Liffey River. The huge sculpture of the national hero O'Connell standing at the top of the bridge is watching the people and tourists passing by, witnessing the history and changes of Dublin. Compared with another beautiful half-penny bridge on the Liffey River, the Cornell Bridge looks mighty and vicissitudes of life.
We walked over this bridge almost every day in Dublin for five days. Across the bridge is O'Connell Street, where the famous old post office, the bright pillar, and pedestrian street are all on this street.
Traffic on the bridge is heavy, with double-decker red tourist buses coming and going, including several buses that go to the airport, and there are many tourists at noon. Nowadays, many streets in Dublin are under construction, with bridgeheads and both sides of the road under construction. I heard that the construction of trams is resumed.
If you’re a person who loves to walk, then you shall enjoy the walk on this bridge. The bridge quite busy during the day and in the night. But if you love history and art then it’s good choice.
They all say that they will stay together after walking the bridge with their partner. I am very happy. Every time I walk across from above, I can feel that there are more cars.
