      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.
