Built in 1816 in Shropshire England and originally named the Wellington Bridge after the Duke of Wellington, now known officially as the Liffey Bridge but affectionately as the Ha’Penny Bridge. The Ha’Penny is a pedestrian bridge that straddles the Liffey. It earned its name from William Walsh, a ferryman who built the Bridge and charged a toll of one ha’penny to travellers for over 100 years. The bridge has a 43 metre span, is 3 metres in width and rises an elegant 3 metres above the river. Today, over 30,000 pedestrians use the bridge daily.
