A popular British YouTuber whose channel has almost five million subscribers has published a video about Cork's iconic Shakey Bridge delving into the history of the bridge and its recent renovation. 

Tom Scott, best known for his concise educational videos on a range of topics, has produced an informative video on the bridge formally known as Daly's Bridge.

The video, entitled 'The Bridge that must Legally Wobble', features stunning drone footage of the beloved bridge in addition to comments from local historian and Independent Cork city councillor, Kieran McCarthy. 

Mr McCarthy explains the fascinating history of the bridge, picked from a bridge catalogue in the 1920s and partly funded by a generous donation from local businessman, James Daly. 

In the video, Scott tests out the bridge to experience the signature wobble for himself and also explains the process to repair the bridge which, in 2017, was found to require immediate repairs. 

The video, published yesterday, has already amassed more than 1.2m views and is trending 27th on YouTube.
