The Ghost Bike At Harold's Cross Bridge Has Been Returned By The Council

On Tuesday the ghost bike at Harold's Cross Bridge was removed by the council, but it has now been restored.

After pictures of the bikes removal were posted on Broadsheet.ie, there was a public outcry against the move by the council, who'd taken the bicycle away as part of a scheme to clean up abandoned bikes.

Of course this was not a forgotten bicycle but a ghost bike, a memorial to 27-year-old Chinese national Zu Zhang Wong, who was tragically killed by a lorry at this spot in 2009.

According the The Times, Dublin City Council took heed of the public's outrage and re-installed the bike to its former location. The move was reportedly championed by Ciarán Cuffe and Patrick Costello of the Green Party.
