Sylvester O’Halloran Foot Bridge


SORRY FOR THE DELAY
Built in 1987 this footbridge is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Sylvester O'Halloran. The bridge crosses the Abbey River from the Potato Market to behind the Hunt Museum.

Sylvester O'Halloran (31 December 1728 – 11 August 1807) was an Irish surgeon with an abiding interest in Gaelic poetry and history. For most of his life he lived and practised in Limerick, and was later elected a member of the Royal Irish Academy (RIA).
