National Hugging Day PR Photography

This series of Landscape Photography was used to promote National Hugging Day in Cork City in 2021. Cork City Landmarks were lit up in a pink/purple theme to raise awareness about National Hugging Day and everyone was encourage to share Love, Kindness and Virtual Hugs with their loved ones. The beautiful lighting of the bridge was sponsored by SSE Airtricity.

Daly’s Bridge (Shakey Bridge)

Daly’s Bridge, or better known locally as the ‘Shakey Bridge’ was lit up pink/purple for National Hugging Day. The name derives from the movement of the bridge’s platform when you run or jump on it. The bridge crosses over the River Lee, joining Sunday’s Well to Fitzgerald’s Park.
