DUBLIN’S HA’PENNY Bridge is 200 years old today, and still looks as good as it did when it was built in 1816.

The bridge has a special place in Dubliners’ hearts, and for good reason – here are 10 times it’s proved that to us.

When Phil Lynott gave it a starring role in the video for Old Town

And a young U2 pranced across it

Every time you’ve had to take a massive stride to get down the huuuuge steps

And stopped so tourists could get a photo of the view

But it’s cool because hey, it’s the Ha’penny Bridge.

And gawked at the forbidden love locks

Or simply paused for a moment to take in another ridey Dublin sunset

The best place to do it (until you get swept up in a crowd of pedestrians).

Or a Dublin rainbow

Or a particularly lovely Dublin night

When it was just a young bridge…

…And today, on its 200th birthday

The bridge was decorated with flowers and a bright red carpet in honour of the day – doesn’t it look wonderful?
