Dubliners have taken the bridge to their heart - the measure of which is to dub it with witty nicknames. For some it is the ‘Bingo Bridge’, allowing northsiders and southsiders to frequent each other’s bingo halls. Others, amused by the apparent bounce they experience...More

The Sean O'Casey Bridge was a project of the 2005 Dublin Dockyards construction improvements. The swing bridge is named such because sections 'swing' open to allow boat traffic pass the low bridge. There are two supports in the river that swing the pedestrian-only bridge.
