Broome Bridge on the Royal Canal
Broome Bridge on the Royal Canal
Broome Bridge on the Royal Canal. Renowned as the location where, in 1843, the Irish mathematician, physicist and astronomer William Rowan Hamilton came up with an important mathematical equation. He was on his way to nearby Dunsink observatory and reputedly scratched it on the stone work, lest he forget it.

The bridge appears as "William Rowen Hamilton Bridge" on some maps.
