Rosie Hackett Bridge (Droichead Róise Haicéid)

A low, single span, concrete structure, it is simple and sensitive in design blends into the surrounding historic quayside. That sensitivity and simplicity complements its purpose – it is a public transport priority bridge, its 26 metre width generously accommodating dedicated bus and taxi lanes, a cycle track for southbound traffic, open spaces for foot passengers and a LUAS light rail track.

Rosie Hackett Bridge (Droichead Róise Haicéid)

Rosie Hackett Bridge is the newest addition to the family of bridges crossing the River Liffey. Construction began in February 2012 and the bridge opened on the 20th of May 2014. Named after the trade union activist, who was involved in the 1913 Lockout, and later the 1916 Rising, it is the only bridge in the city centre named after a woman.

For Dubliners, the real story of this bridge was in its name. For the first time ever suggestions were actively sought from individuals and groups and were finally filtered down by Dublin City Council to the very resonant Rosie Hackett Bridge.
