BANDON BRIDGE [1]. Irish, Air (2/4 time). A Minor. Standard. AB. Bandon Bridge is a town in County Cork near the sea-coast about 15 miles from Cork city, and derives its name after a bridge over the river Bandon. The town's origins lie with English planters on the great Desmond forfeitures in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I.
