"Plank Bridge, Cascille, Northern Ireland"???

This question isn't really genealogical, but a question of geography.

There is a fascinating image of a suspension bridge, that's spread to many Internet sites, and all sites that show it simply say "Plank Bridge, Cascille, Northern Ireland." I can't find that any place called "Cascille" actually exists. Do any of you know of such a place, or do you recognize the bridge? Planking on a suspension bridge of this scale seems unlikely, and I have a feeling the whole, magnificent image may be a fake, a bit of clever photoshopping.

I live in N.Ireland and I never heard of a place called Cascille, nor have I ever seen a bridge like that, the only suspenion bridge I know of is Carrick-on-rede

I agree that this is probably a hoax. Northern Ireland is quite small and it’s not too difficult to know the main tourist attractions. There’s no bridge like that here, nor anywhere named Cascille. And I agree that the planks look quite inappropriate on that type of bridge. Someone has been using photoshop to create unusual images, I suspect.

Thanks to both of you for confirming my suspicion. It's the sort of bridge that will probably show up in my dreams some night.

About a year ago I have discovered this bridge to be in Russia, specifically over the Katun River, Tyungar Village, Altai Republic, Siberia, Russia. http://pinterest.com/pin/91901648616239488/
With my full name being Patrick Shawn O'Donnell I would certainly like this bridge to be in Ireland, but that is not the case. Yes, those boards are real - see the other pictures in the links within the link. If I ever make it to Ireland I will visit that Carrick-on-rede bridge!

Amazing! Thank you. I wonder why the shot got mixed up with a fictional location.

No, it's not Carrick a Rede. A fraction of the length, completely different planks, no high suspension towers etc etc.Here’s Carrick a Rede. Judge for yourself.
