1932 – Butt Bridge, Dublin

Architect: Joseph Mallagh C.E.




Designed by engineer Joseph Mallagh with input on its visual appearance by O’Callaghan and Giron. Open in 1932, replacing the previous swivel bridge which was deemed unsuitable due to width and gradient. The first Liffey bridge to be constructed from reinforced concrete, it has three spans. As a sign of the times, the inscription mentions that the year was also the year of thr 31st Eucharistic Congress.
