Wolfe Tone Bridge is named after an Irish revolutionary, Theobald Wolfe Tone (1763-1798). Wolfe Tone was called to the bar in 1789 but turned his attention to politics, whom, inspired by the example of the French Revolution, helped found the United Irish Society which worked to unite Roman Catholics and Protestants in a common cause against English oppression of Ireland.
