Description
Five-arch road bridge over Little Brosna River, built c. 1820, of coursed rubble limestone construction with cut limestone voussoirs to high parabolic arches, with cutwaters. Splayed rubble limestone rubble walls to each end of bridge.

Appraisal

Although heavily repointed, the proportions and form of this bridge over the Little Brosna River remain unaltered, with the swept parapet walls and high round arches adding character and elegance to the structure. The bridge is also of importance as it spans the boundary between the counties of Tipperary and Offaly. The construction of the arches is of technical and engineering merit.
