O'Shaugnessy Footbridge
O'Shaugnessy Footbridge
The striking 50 metre long modern bridge which was opened in July 2012 links Fisheries Field at the north end of Nun's Island (on which Galway Cathedral stands) with the University campus on the west bank. It spans two water courses - the Eglinton Canal, and a much smaller mill race on Nun's Island. Michael O'Shaughnessy (1864-1934) for whom the bridge is named, graduated in Civil Engineering from the Queen's College, Galway (as it was then known) in 1884 and went on to a distinguished career as Chief Engineer for the City of San Francisco.
