Original Usebridge
In Use Asbridge
Double-arch masonry road bridge, built c.1820, carrying the western road into Shinrone over a tributary of the River Little Brosna. Random coursed stone construction to walls and piers with tooled ashlar voussoirs to arches. Arch to east is now blocked and used as an gated underpass. Area to downstream has been made into a park.


The random coursed wall construction with the finely finished ring arches reflects the solidity of the masonry. The location of the adjacent small park highlights the bridge as a focal point and recreational zone within Shinrone.
