The bridge was built in 2005, as part of a large-scale urban renewal scheme under the Dublin Docklands Development Authority to link the north and south quays and rejuvenate both. The swing bridge spans ~100 metres and has two balanced cantilever arms that swing open to allow boats pass up river. The bridge was opened by An Taoiseach Bertie Ahern in July 2005, and is named for the playwright Sean O'Casey (1880-1964) who lived in the North Wall area of the city."

O'Connell Street Dublin, this morning. To the centre of the city where all roads meet, waiting for you, To the depths of the ocean where all hopes sank, searching for you, I was moving through the silence without motion, waiting for you, In a room with a window in the corner I found truth. In the shadowplay, acting out your own death, knowing no more, As the assassins all grouped in four lines, dancing on the floor, And with cold streel, odour on their bodies mad a move to connect, But I could only stare in disbelief as the crowds all left. I did everything, everything I wanted to, I let them use you for their own ends, To the centre of the city in the night, waiting for you. To the centre of the city in the night, waiting for you. - Shadowplay by Joy Division


Lough Gur is one of the most subtley impressive and important archaeological sites in Ireland. With the largest stone circle and other megalithic sites, castles, entrances to the Land of Youth, lake dwellings, and layer upon layer of myth, it's one of my favourites places.
