Daly's bridge is a pedestrian bridge spanning the River Lee along the Mardyke Walk. Known locally as the Shaky Bridge, it joins Sunday's Well road on the Northside, to Fitzgerald's Park on the South. It was completed in 1926 and it opened in 1927. Located in one of the most picturesque locations in the City it is a famous landmark and exudes the kind of old world atmosphere that is found in places like Cambridge. Built to allow access from the University over the river to the wealthy mansion houses of Sunday’s Well. Today it is popular with fishermen and people just out for a nice stroll. This is an ideal location for shooting picturesque, romantic or historical scenes near the heart of the City.

It is the only suspension bridge in Cork city Constructed primarily of wrought iron, the bridge spans 160 feet and the timber planked walkway is four and a half feet wide. The bridge takes its official name from Cork businessman James Daly, who contributed to the cost of the bridge. Its colloquial name, the "Shaky Bridge’, derives from the movement of the platform when running or jumping on the bridge.
