Daly's bridge is a pedestrian bridge spanning the River Lee in Cork, Ireland. Known locally as the Shakey Bridge, it joins Sunday's Well on the northside, to Fitzgerald's Park in the Mardyke area on the south.
Completed in 1926 and opened in 1927, it is the only suspension bridge in Cork city and was constructed by the London-based David Rowell & Company to the design of Stephen W. Farrington, the Cork City Engineer.
The bridge takes its official name from Cork businessman James Daly, who contributed to the cost of the bridge. Its colloquial name (the "Shakey Bridge" or "Shaky Bridge") derives from the movement of the platform when running or jumping on the bridge.
