Appraisal

Very similar to the Gasworks Bridge in Clonmel, this form is notable for its use of large arches relative to its size, and the addition of a dry arch for pedestrian use in riverbank walks. Textural contrast is provided by the juxtaposition of cut stone and carved stone with rubble walls. Visible from a considerable distance over the surrounding landscape, the triple-arch humpback form has been adapted and expanded to create an elegant and dramatic feature.
