The Shakey Bridge Listening Project
First created by Tom Lane for the 2013 Cork Midsummer Festival this site-specific audio walk piece uses sound recorded directly from the Shakey Bridge (Daly's Bridge) combined with a narration by Mark D'Aughton. The bridge is currently closed for maintenance, but Tom Lane has created a new version of this piece which can be experienced on any bridge across the River Lee. (Duration: 15 minutes.)

Starting point: Begin on the south side of the river, approximately 50 metres downriver of your chosen bridge.
