South Gate Bridge Cork City

It is very likely that a bridge has existed on or near the site of the South Gate Bridge since the arrival of the Vikings in Cork between the ninth and tenth centuries. The Vikings settled on the south island in the present-day South Main Street area and on the south bank of the Lee directly across the river. A bridge or ford almost certainly linked the two settlements.
