There is growing speculation that the Kilkenny city centre, pedestrian bridge, linking Bateman Quay and John’s Quay on the other side of the River Nore will be called after leading sports star, Henry Shefflin.
The bridge will be put in place in the next few weeks and will be open by November 24. The notion of naming it after the nine time All Ireland senior hurling medal winner took hold after a suggestion by the president of Kilkenny Chamber of Commerce and industry, Donie Butler on the Sue Nunn programme on KCLR radio.
Cllr Joe Reidy of Kilkenny Borough Council said it was true that no name had yet been agreed for the new bridge and he said. He added that suggestions for a name for the new bridge should be sent the Borough Council at City Hall or to the Kilkenny People website.
He confirmed the new bridge would be in place in the next few weeks and that it would be lit.
