Triple-arch ashlar limestone bridge, carrying the canal over a river, built c.1795, with upstream and downstream cutwaters. Carved plaques, string courses, pilasters and rock-faced voussoirs.
This multiple-arch aqueduct is an interesting feat of late eighteenth-century engineering in Ireland. The dramatic form and location of the aqueduct is enhanced by the adjacent multiple-arch railway bridge. The aqueduct forms an interesting group of related structures with the single-arch canal bridge, lock and canal workers' house. The high quality masonry is a notable feature of the bridge.
