Some people, including myself, know this as Harold’s Cross Bridge but officially it is now the Robert Emmet Bridge and it features a memorial in honour of Robert Emmet.

It was originally named Clanbrassil Bridge but was rebuilt in 1935-36 and renamed in honour of the 1803 rebellion leader Robert Emmet.

Up until recently there was a ‘Ghost Bike’ memorial located here but it has been removed. As I received a number of messages indicating that the bike had been returned I decided to visit to confirm if this was in fact true. The bad news is there was no sign of it. I have uploaded a photograph to prove that it is no longer there.


According to Loving Dublin the Ghost Bike [ in memory of Zu Zhang Wong who died Wednesday, January 14, 2009 Age: 27 ] which had been removed be City council staff had been returned to it’s original position beside the bridge but as already mentioned, my most recent photographs show that it is no longer to be seen at the Grove Road street sign. Maybe is has been relocated but I could not find it.

As the bridge was not named on Google Maps I managed to have information and a pin added.
