“Predestrian Bridge in the heart of City, across the River Liffey”

Ha'penny Bridges is also officially named the Liffey Bridge, a pedestrian bridge built in May 1816 over the River Liffey in Dublin, Ireland. Made of cast iron, the bridge was cast in Shropshire, England.

History:
Before the Ha'penny Bridge was built there were seven ferries, operated by a William Walsh, across the Liffey. The ferries were in a bad condition and Walsh chose to built a bridge and collect a ha'penny toll from anyone crossing it for 100 years. The toll was increased for a time to a penny-ha'penny (1½ pence), but was eventually dropped in 1919. While the toll was in operation, there were turnstiles at either end of the bridge.
