It has to be Queen Maeve Bridge for me – even if the name change was faintly ridiculous…
Such a graceful, simple structure. O’Donovan Rossa is a close contender, not least considering its similarity, but Maeve just beats it by her timeless hump-backed profile 🙂
The Ha’penny, albeit an obvious choice is still in the top two/three – another classic profile that just cannot be beaten.
And it’s such a ‘friendly’ looking structure too – it looks like it’s reaching out from both sides to link the north and south together:
Those lanterns though have just got to go – a breathtaking insult to the structure. The most famous lanterns in the country and the CC tack on a handful of standardised factory-churned pieces of rubbish: it beggars belief.
The conservationists that restored the bridge must be fuming.
