Sarsfield Bridge

Sarsfield Bridge

Limerick City

The second of Limerick's River Shannon crossings is now called Sarsfield Bridge, to commemorate Patrick Sarsfield, the Earl of Lucan, who is renowned in Limerick for his role in the Williamite War and the 1691 siege and Treaty of Limerick in particular. The bridge was opened as Wellesley Bridge on 5 August 1835, following 11 years of construction. It was designed by the Scottish engineer Alexander Nimmo and based on the Pont de Neuilly in Paris. It was a particularly important development for the city as it allowed expansion to the northern shore of the river. REference: Wikipedia

A lovely skyline/bridge photograph - I very much enjoy the creamy look a river takes on when photographed with a longer exposure like this. Voted.
