  Ha'penny Bridge

Accepted as the symbol of Dublin, the Ha'penny Bridge (offically Wellington Bridge after the 'Iron Duke') was opened in 1816. Cast at Coalbrookdale in Shropshire in England, the bridge acquired its unofficial monniker from the toll paid to cross the river - one old half penny. The bridge was the only pedestrian bridge on the Liffey until the new Millenium bridge further up was opened in 2000
