Description
Triple-arch masonry road bridge, built c.1850, carrying a road over the Little Brosna River at the border of Counties Offaly and Tipperary. It is adjacent to a derelict mill and sluice gate. Segmental profile arch with dressed limestone voussoirs. Squared random rubble walls. V-shaped cutwaters. Dressed limestone string course.

Appraisal

Derrinsallow Bridge is associated with a derelict mill downstream. The well proprtioned, wide and shallow segmental arches are typical of mid nineteenth-century Grand Jury presentment bridges. It is similar to Oxmantown Bridge in Birr. Uniting counties Offaly and Tipperary, Derrinsallow Bridge is an important crossing point.
