Love Locks Revisted

If you were listening yesterday you’d have heard us discuss the problem of ‘love locks’ on Dublin’s iconic Ha’penny Bridge over the River Liffey that links Temple Bar with Liffey Street.

Anyone who’s crossed the bridge over the past two years will undoubtedly have spotted these numerous clumps of padlocks securely locked to the rails and overhead arches on the bridge.

These so called “love locks” are being put there by couples as a very public symbol of their love for each other.

Brenda give Derek an update on the locks and they speak to Siobhan Silke from France 24 about the problem in Paris. See her pictures below.
