Description
Triple-arch bridge carrying road over Nenagh River, built c. 1830, with segmental-headed arches and with triangular cutwaters to south. Rusticated limestone walls and parapet with dressed limestone coping, string course, cutwaters and voussoirs and with pilasters to ends of bridge. Some brick repairs to soffits.

Appraisal

The well-carved masonry and variety of finishes to this bridge are evidence of the high quality craftsmanship involved. The walls of the pilasters are carved in a particularly pronounced rustication typical of the nineteenth century. The unusually long parapet walls create a sense of anticipation.
