Description
Five-arched limestone road bridge over Little Brosna River, built c. 1780. Segmental arches and with V-cutwaters to south elevation, those of central piers extending up to parapet level to provide pedestrian refuges. Rubble limestone walls with squared limestone voussoirs to arches. Concrete casing to bridge piers, render to barrels of arches and pointing .

Appraisal

A distinctive bridge having a wide span and three refuges to the south side. Spanning the Little Brosna River on the Offaly/Tipperary border this bridge is still in continuous use by traffic. The bridge's survival in such good condition to the present day highlights the quality of construction and technical merit of the structure.
