Description
Double-arch road bridge, built c.1800, spanning Dripsey River. Single-span feeder arch located to the west. Rubble stone walls with segmental-headed arches having replacement concrete arch. Rubble stone V-cutwaters to north and south elevations. Rubble stone parapet walls with concrete capping. Weir to upstream elevation.

Appraisal

Though simple in design this bridge serves as a reminder of the engineering achievements of the early nineteenth century. The weir and additional arch were most likely built to accommodate a mill race which fed Clonmoyle mill located to the south.
