A thought from Keating's Managing Director Marcus Carne

"I am reminded of a famous quotation by the great Charles Darwin……..’it is not the strongest of the species that survive, not the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change’….. I believe this captures the current time accurately, please look after yourselves and your families, stay connected and we will work through these difficult times together."

Daly's Bridge, Cork City

Since last September, the sections of Daly’s bridge have undergone extensive repairs and conservation work, including grit-blasting and repainting. Most of the original latticework has been retained and a new deck has been installed. The entire bridge deck has now been replaced less than five months after it was removed. But it will be April before people can cross it and find out if it still retains its famous shake.
