Maybe not in the category of Kissing the Blarney Stone, or Ringing the Shandon Bells, but crossing "De Shaky Bridge" (and making it shake) is very much a Cork thing to do. If crossing from south to north, why not keep going and visit Cork Gaol - and if crossing from north to south, yes, keep going again and visit... More

I was walking from Sundays Well and decided to make a detour into Fitzgeralds Park and cross over the Shaky Bridge (never knew it was called Daly's Bridge until looking it up here). The reason it was called Daly's Bridge is after James Daly, a Cork businessman who gave the money for the bridge to be built in 1926 and... More

'The Shaky Bridge' as it is known locally is at the western side of Fitzgerald Park. It links the Southside and Northside of the city crossing over the river Lee. Not remarkable by any stretch of the imagination but nonetheless it is a good experience for young children. Normally we cross over and back, takes no time at all, always... More

This is known as the 'shaky bridge'. It is a suspension bridge built for the 1902 Great Exhibition, crossing the Lee from Sundays Well side. if you rock it, or jump on it, it still shakes!

Before it was built, pedestrians were carried on the river with boats. This is one of the several bridges of the city, better known as the "shaking bridge". The reason of the name is clear, and crossing it while others are walking is very funny. And also sure, I promise! It links Fitzgerald Park (one of the areas of the... More

Daly's Bridge is a lovely pedestrian suspension bridge. Its white painted towers stand out against the green trees and grey concrete along the River Lee. It connects Fiitzgerald's Park and the Mardyke Way with Sunday's Well across the Lee. It provides a crossing in a walk from the university area and park to two excellent pubs, Annie's, which has a...

A lovely suspension bridge located just 1km. from city centre and adjacent to a beautiful public park. It is overlooked by the period houses of Sundays Well.

It's called the shake bridge but we didn't find it that shaky. But its a beautiful bridge view a nice view and we have some kids who love to look in the water for old biles and fish. Next to it is a small skaterpark, also nice.

The shaky bridge is well known to Corkonian northsiders. To get to Fitzgeralds park from Sundays Well on foot an essential part of the day out is to stand on the shaky bridge and jump up and down to make it vibrate. It is a wonderful suspension bridge with fantastic views down the river towards the city.

Daly's Bridge is known in Cork as the "shakey bridge", because it is in fact a small suspension bridge designed only for pedestrian traffic, and true to it's name, if you jump p and down on it, the whole structure begins to vibrate and shake. If you go down the road a little bit to Wellington Bridge, you can get... More
