Triple-arch road bridge over Little Brosna River, built c. 1860. Cut limestone walls having voussoirs, string courses, coursed limestone rubble parapets and U-cutwaters to west, downstream, elevation. Lower limestone rubble walls extend from parapets along road.

Appraisal

Scenic bridge of good quality craftsmanship having wide spanning arches over the Little Brosna River and joining the counties of Tipperary and Offaly. The bridge exhibits good quality stone masonry and fine, crisp joints, and the construction of the arches is of technical and engineering merit. The juxtaposition of the bridge with Derrinsallow Mill forms a group of considerable quality.
