Work begins on pedestrian bridge

Work has begun on a €1 million pedestrian bridge designed on the concept of a fishing rod. The bridge, planned to cross the river Moy in Ballina, Co Mayo, at the Ridgepool beat, has been funded by the Social and Economic Fund and is part of a plan to market Ballina as the salmon capital of Ireland.

The North Western Regional Fisheries Board had initially objected to the bridge on the grounds that casting fishing lines could endanger the public.
