  • The Rosie Hackett bridge spans the Liffey in Dublin's city centre. The bridge is located just a few minutes walk from O'Connell O'Connell Bridge. It was opened in the year 2014 and has a length of 48 meters. The bridge brings some relief in the traffic chaos in the city with security. A landmark in the strict sense is not but. Sure it lacks elegance or special features in the style.
