Appraisal

Sharavogue Bridge is situated beside the Sharavogue railway bridge and together the bridges add to the architectural heritage of the area. It was built on the site of an earlier eighteenth-/early nineteenth-century bridge which was replaced by the Board of Works as part of the Little Brosna drainage scheme works from 1848-1852.
