The Millennium Bridge, Dublin

The Millennium Bridge (Droichead na Mílaoise in Irish) is the second pedestrian bridge spanning the River Liffey in Dublin and it joins Eustace Street in Temple Bar to the north quays.

The bridge is 51 metres in length and 4 metres wide.

It was erected in December 1999, to commemorate the new millennium (2000). The bridge was actually constructed in County Carlow as a portal frame structure made up of a slender steel truss and resting on reinforced concrete haunches.

The designers of the Millennium Bridge were Architects Howley Harrington with Price & Myers as Consulting Engineers. The concrete base and steel structure for the bridge were provided by Formwork 2000+ and Thompson Engineering respectively. Both are Carlow firms.

The Millennium Bridge sits on the Liffey between the well known pedestrian Ha'penny Bridge to the east, and Grattan Bridge to the west.
