Naming the new Marlborough St. Bridge

Will Dublin be continuing the recent trend for writers (which I like)? Any name suggestions for it?

Hamilton Bridge would be a good choice too, seeing as the Luas lune passing over it heads to Broombrdge.

If they stick with writers, perhaps Oscar Wilde or Patrick Kavanagh.

Kavanagh needs a canal bridge. Not keen on Wilde.

Kavanagh has his seat by the Royal Canal, seems more appropriate

Quite...and what was his wish...

"O commemorate me with no hero-courageous tomb...just a canal bank seat for the passer-by"

I like the idea of Binchey Bridge

While we could do with another bridge named after a woman - I don't think Binchey is she.

Who says it needs to be a writer? maybe an albeit modest nod to Eileen Gray or Peter Rice?

May I suggest calling the bridge the 'Dublin Bus Employee's Bridge' Since they are the reason the bridge is being built in the first place. :thumbdown:

Name it after Merkel. Might loosen her up on the debt.

There's a train station not a kilometer away named after the man. There's enough things names after Easter Rising leaders.
