Name new Liffey bridge after a right Charlie

There has been a lot of suggestions in the media about the naming of the new Liffey Bridge. I propose it be named after the greatest taoiseach this country has produced, Charles J Haughey.

After all, Charlie was the architect of producing the bridge with the widest span in Ireland — the span between the rich and the poor and he ensured that gap stayed there during his regime.
